Announced this year, there will be a brand-new session occurring at Kidney Week 2018 in San Diego on October 25. The session focuses on significant publications in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) and the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) from this past year.

Editor-in-Chief of JASN, Josephine P. Briggs, MD, and Editor-in-Chief of CJASN, Rajnish Mehrotra, MD, MBBS, FASN, will moderate the session, highlighting innovative clinical, translational, and basic research in nephrology. Topics will also cover diverse, novel, and clinically applicable science across a variety of nephrology disciplines.

NephSAP Volume 17, Number 4, September 2018

Please read the full issue.

Secondary Glomerular Diseases

The kidney, more specifically the glomerulus, is often injured during systemic diseases. These secondary glomerulonephritides often manifest with proteinruia, heamturia, and impaired kidney function occasionally. Diagnosis is challenging, and treatments frequently incorporate immunomodulatory drugs with potential for severe side-effects. The 2018 Secondary Glomerular Diseases issue of NephSAP presents the reader with the latest updates on diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of a wide range of glomerular diseases likely encountered in practice. Recommendations are offered based on the best available evidence. All relevant, randomized, controlled clinical trials are discussed. The reader will also be introduced to reasearch-based findings of special clinical relevance such as biomarkers of disease activity and response. Gaps in knowledge are indicated, and considered in the context of future investigation. After studying this issue of NephSAP, readers are invited to test their knowledge in a series of challanging case studies and questions, accompanied by detailed explanations of the best answers.
