The Yellow Brick Road? Rethinking Clinical Development Strategies in AKI

November 05, 2022 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W320 Chapin, Orange County Convention Center, West Building

Session Description

This session explores the processes and opportunities to innovate in the development of new therapeutic agents for AKI. Particular emphasis is given to emerging concepts on clinical trial design, end point selection, and targeting the transition from AKI to CKD.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Identify how AKI models, model organisms, and experimental outcomes map to discrete AKI syndromes and trial populations
  • Describe how innovative end point selection in early-phase clinical trials could bolster the pipeline for AKI therapeutics
  • Discuss emerging trial design concepts and how they might be applied to AKI

Learning Pathway(s)

  • AKI and Critical Care
  • Pharmacology
