Combat Diabetic Nephropathy: From Pathogenesis to Treatment

Call for Papers

Diabetic nephropathy is the most common microvascular complication of diabetes and remains one of the leading causes of end-stage renal disease worldwide. Understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the development/progression of diabetic nephropathy is important to identify novel therapeutic targets for therapy. Not only nephrologist and endocrinologist but also all internal physicians combat this disease. We invite submissions of original research or review articles on pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in the development/progression of diabetic nephropathy. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Inflammation and fibrosis in diabetic nephropathy
  • Aging in diabetic nephropathy
  • Genetics in diabetic nephropathy
  • AGEs in diabetic nephropathy
  • Oxidative stress in diabetic nephropathy
  • Biomarkers in diabetic nephropathy
  • Treatment of hypertension, hyperglycemia, and hyperlipidemia in diabetic nephropathy
