Kibow Biotech Inc: A new initiative is launched to mark World Kidney Day 2016
World Kidney Day 2016 – The Lancet and the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) are launching an online campaign to raise awareness of acute and chronic kidney diseases and bring together the best available evidence to inform strategies to reduce the national, regional and global burden of the disease and its risk factors.
Chronic kidney disease affects 10% of the population worldwide and that number is growing. Acute kidney injury, which affects 30 million people globally, can cause death or lead to chronic kidney disease. Only 10% of those who need renal replacement have access to treatment. Moreover, though quite preventable and treatable, kidney disease often goes unrecognized by doctors, patients, and healthcare decision makers.
The campaign is hosted on The Lancet website and aims to bring together research, expert commentaries and analysis on acute kidney injury (AKI), chronic kidney disease (CKD), dialysis and transplantation from across the journal’s database. It will also provide regular updates on advances in nephrology as well as expert commentaries and interviews on key health and policy issues relevant to kidney disease.
