Precision Medicine Approaches for Renal Osteodystrophy

November 02, 2023 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: Room 121, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Renal osteodystrophy (ROD) is a heterogenous syndrome. Diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are limited due to poorly understood pathophysiology. This session examines the heterogeneous presentation of ROD, reviews existing and novel approaches to identify subtypes of ROD, and presents innovative approaches to better define pathophysiology of the different ROD subtypes.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss the heterogeneous nature of ROD in adults and children with CKD
  • Outline traditional diagnostic approaches (including biomarkers of bone turnover) to subtype ROD during CKD and following kidney transplantation
  • Describe novel circulating and noncirculating biomarkers of bone turnover
  • Provide an overview of new approaches to study pathophysiology of ROD (and its subtypes) in animals and humans

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Bones‚ Stones‚ and Mineral Metabolism
  • Dialysis
