Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nephrologists face new and important challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the kidney is not the primary target of SARS-CoV-2, the virus has a severe impact on patients with kidney diseases, who may be more vulnerable and susceptible to severe infection. In addition, kidney transplant patients face a higher risk of complications following SARS-CoV-2 infection, and many studies show that COVID-19 can induce kidney damage through direct or indirect mechanisms. This Special Issue will focus on all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the field of nephrology, including management and appropriate therapy, epidemiology and clinical outcomes.
