Precision Medicine 2019: March Special Section

Kidney News is pleased to present this edition’s special section on precision medicine. The ability to derive diagnosis and care, specific to the individual patient and the exact timing and nature of their disease process, is anticipated to result in a huge leap forward in the efficacy and safety of treatment. A PubMed search revealed more than 50,000 articles about this topic, including more than 1600 articles when restricted to “kidney,” and the rate of new articles is rapidly climbing. It thus seemed appropriate to review this approach with our audience. The first 4 articles were kindly curated and organized by our Europe editor, Professor Gert Mayer, and review new technology and approaches for the utilization of precision medicine in common kidney disease scenarios. The final 2 articles were kindly provided by the authors to round out this month’s section and make it more comprehensive, focusing on the efforts of the Kidney Precision Medicine project. We hope you find them of interest.kn march 2.PNG
