Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral and Bone Disorder

Description

Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is common in CKD patients. It occurs in many stages of CKD and may be responsible for vascular calcification and cardiovascular disease in these patients. Several guidelines on the management of CKD-MBD have been published but gaps between guidelines and clinical practice indeed exist. To fill the gaps and to explore the understanding of CKD-MBD, plenty of basic and clinical research articles come out. In this special issue, we intended to focus on recent advances on the pathophysiology and management of CKD-MBD.

We invite authors to contribute review and original research articles that will stimulate the continuing effort to understand this disease and will offer novel perspectives on the management of CKD-MBD.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Investigations into risk or prognostic factors of CKD-MBD
  • Recent discoveries of novel molecules/pathways in CKD-MBD
  • New concepts on the diagnosis of CKD-MBD
  • Reassessment of the treatment goal of CKD-MBD
  • Recent advances in pharmacological management of CKD-MBD
  • Recent advances in nonpharmacological management of CKD-MBD
  • Outcome analysis of CKD-MBD
