Special Issue "Recent Advances and Clinical Outcomes of Kidney Transplantation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
Advances in immunosuppression and kidney transplant techniques have led to significant improvements in the short-term survival of the renal allograft. Long-term graft survival, however, has relatively lagged behind and has now become one of the main problems in kidney transplantation.
In this Special Issue, we are making a call to action to stimulate researchers and clinicians to submit their invaluable studies on kidney transplantation, including works on issues related to donors, allograft, and patient survival following transplantation that will provide additional knowledge and skills in the field of transplantation research, ultimately to improve outcomes after kidney transplantation. Original investigations, review articles, and short communications are especially welcome.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
ABO-Incompatible Kidney Transplant Outcomes
Advances in Renal Transplant Immunosuppression
Advances in Kidney Procurement and Transplantation
Antibody-Mediated Rejection: New Approaches to Prevention and Management
APOL1 Genotype and Kidney Transplantation Outcomes
BK Virus Nephropathy and Kidney Transplantation
Bone Disease after Renal Transplantation
Cardiovascular complications after renal transplantation
Cell-Free DNA and Active Rejection in Renal Allografts
Clinical outcomes of kidney transplantation in older end-stage renal disease patients
Donor-specific Antibody and Graft Outcomes in Kidney Transplant Recipients.
Evaluation of the living kidney donor candidate
Infectious complications after kidney transplantation
Combined Liver–Kidney Transplantation
Management of acute rejection of kidney allograft
Pancreas and Kidney Transplants: New Lease on Life
Pediatric kidney transplantation in the New Era
Post-transplantation diabetes in kidney transplant recipients
Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder in Kidney Transplant Recipients
Recent Advances in Perioperative Management for Kidney Transplantation
Recurrent glomerulonephritis after kidney transplantation
Risks and complications in living kidney donors
Role of Procurement Biopsies in Acceptance Decisions for Kidneys Retrieved for Transplantation
Treatment of Chronic Antibody-Mediated Rejection after Kidney Transplantation

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
