[PRESSWIRE] Budapest - June 13, 2019 -- Alport syndrome (AS) is a hereditary type IV collagen disease that leads to progressive proteinuria, renal fibrosis, and kidney failure.

[PRESSWIRE] Budapest - June 13, 2019 -- High cardiovascular morbidity and mortality remain a persisting problem in patients with CKD. Many efforts have been made in subjects with normal kidney function to prevent and to reduce the progression of cardiovascular diseases.

[PRESSWIRE] Parma - April 26, 2019 -- The recently published CREDENCE study [1] showed that SGLT2 inhibitors can slow progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in diabetes patients in addition to the effects seen with RAAS blockade. The study results were presented at the World Nephrology Congress in Melbourne and showed that Canagliflozin was associated with a 34% risk reduction of the renal end point (end stage renal disease, doubling of serum creatinine or renal death). The previous day, the SONAR study had shown that the selective endothelin A receptor antagonist, atrasentan, reduced the risk of renal events in a specially selected CKD cohort with diabetes to a similar extent (35%).

[PRESSWIRE] Parma - 05 March, 2019 -- 850 million people worldwide are affected by kidney disease [1] – a worrying figure, and one that continues to rise. Prevention of chronic kidney disease is therefore more important than ever, as Professor Carmine Zoccali (Reggio Calabria, Italy), President of the ERA-EDTA, emphasizes on the occasion of World Kidney Day on March 14, 2019.

[PRESSWIRE] Parma - 05 March, 2019 --  “Kidney health for everyone everywhere” – ERA-EDTA has helped to put this motto into practice by offering support for young nephrologists living in disadvantage areas.

[PRESSWIRE] Parma - January 22, 2019 -- 16% of the patients on renal replacement therapy are under the age of 40. These younger patients would benefit greatly from kidney transplantation. Their expected remaining lifetime may even be doubled by having a transplant.

[PRESSWIRE] ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands - 5 July, 2018 -- A total grant sum of EUR 2 million has been awarded to a multidisciplinary EUROSTARS consortium. The EUROSTARS project is titled "Treatment Response Monitoring for Cancer Immunotherapies Using Immune Repertoire Analysis” and named IMMUNOMONITOR.
