More than half a million people worldwide are now sustained by renal replacement therapy, mainly hemodialysis at a cost exceeding USD 30 billion per year. Each case of ESRD that is delayed or prevented saves funds that may be applied to other aspects of health care. Edited by an internationally renowned nephrologist, Prognosis for Kidney Disorders provides a timely summary of exciting work in progress directed toward renoprotection and of ultimate interdiction of ESRD.
Suitable for researchers and clinicians, Dr. Morrell Michael Avram has collected and commented on promising initiatives likely to enter everyday practice in the immediate future. Suitable for renal trainees, experienced kidney doctors, nurses, nutritionists and cardiologists.
