A Novel Approach to Anemia - Introducing HIF SoPHIstication

Have you ever pondered the intricacies of oxygen sensing – or ruminated on the molecular events driving the regulation of the HIF pathway? Every novel scientific discovery acts as the catalyst for countless more queries; the elucidation of the oxygen-dependent HIF pathway is no exception. The unearthing of this intricate transcription factor represents the most recent, innovative science in anemia of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Guided by experts, Drs. Ellie Kelepouris and Rajiv Agarwal, this Akebia-sponsored exhibitor spotlight illuminates the complex and multifactorial events leading to anemia of CKD, and highlights the management of the multiple facets of the disease. Follow along as Drs. Kelepouris and Agarwal shed light on the burden of disease, current standard of care, and clinical challenges in addressing the various aspects of this condition. Together, we'll chart a course to explore the HIF Pathway and underlying events leading to anemia of CKD. So, will you join us on the journey?
