"Kindey injury" occurs at various stages of kidney disease. Renal fibrosis from kidney injury is a common pathway for the progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Despite the significant burden of CKD, specific therapies to prevent its incidence and progression remain limited. Therefore, novel therapies to prevent the decline of kidney function are needed.
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will focus on "Kidney Injury: From Molecular Basis to Therapies". It will include papers investigating the pathological mechanisms of CKD and experimental and clinical studies examining potential treatments to attenuate kidney dysfunction. In addition, works exploring the progression from acute kidney injury to CKD are welcome.
