One of the scientific areas where, over the last few years, the greatest advances have been made in medical research is that of uremic toxicity. Recent progress in molecular biology, analytical approaches, and kinetic modeling, and the advent of “omics” approaches has obviously helped in better understanding the endogenous intoxication resulting from solute retention in chronic kidney disease (CKD). The first steps are now taken in developing new techniques for decreasing the concentration and toxicity of these compounds. These advancements are urgently needed, not only from a medical therapeutic viewpoint, but also from a health-economic perspective. The focus of this Special Issue of Toxins will be on the novel uremic toxins, either newly detected molecules, or well known solutes with newly detected biologic effects. Focus can be as well on identification, biologic effects, generation, and removal as on other approaches to decrease their concentration.

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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.
