Treatment of Primary Glomerulonephritis (Oxford Clinical Nephrology Series) 2nd Edition

Primary glomerulonephritis is a common renal disease which may eventually lead to chronic renal failure. Treatment of glomerulonephritis is difficult. In particular, the use of glucocorticoids and immunosuppressive drugs require expertise, knowledge of the drugs, and careful monitoring of the patient. Paradoxically, the treatment of glomerulonephritis has become even more complicated in the recent years, after the introduction of a number of newer immunosuppressive drugs.

Extensively updated since publication of the first edition in 1997, this comprehensive yet concise guide to the treatment of even the most complex patients with primary glomerular diseases is full of practical information collected and organized in an easy-to-read manner. It encompasses the possible treatments of the different types of primary glomerulonephritis, including diseases intrinsic to the kidney of unknown or uncertain aetiology. Each of the main chapters is devoted to a single primary glomerulonephritis and follows a similar format to allow easy access of information.

The book contains not only an evidence-based review of the topic, but also practical recommendations from internationally recognized experts in the field.

Cystogenesis (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This book covers the mechanisms of renal cyst development as well as the aberrant signaling pathways which are involved in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD). ADPKD is a genetic disease in which cysts appear in the epithelial lining of both kidneys. End stage ADPKD patients experience renal failure and require dialysis or a renal transplantation. There are no specific targeted therapies for ADPKD currently available, making it important to understand the basic cellular mechanisms underlying the onset and progression of ADPKD, in order to identify potential therapeutic targets for the disease.

Several therapeutic approaches that have been attempted to date are reviewed. This work provides a broad overview of ADPKD and highlights the key challenges currently faced by researchers in this field. Furthermore, it provides insight into ADPKD to facilitate the development of novel biomarkers for ADPKD and to direct future research into this challenging pathology.

This book is suitable for clinicians who have encountered patients with ADPKD, for clinicians / researchers working in the field of ADPKD and more generally on the kidney and kidney related disorders and for students of medicine with an interest in internal medicine.

Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria: From Bench to Bedside 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This volume reviews the fundamental understanding of this potentially life-threatening disease and the advances in treatment that have been achieved with the use of the monoclonal antibody eculizumab. Although the PIGA gene has been known for many years, the mechanism of clonal dominance in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is still largely unknown. This book, Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria, discusses the direction of continuing research in this area, as well as the potential for the development of management guidelines. It serves as a valuable source of information for both basic scientists and physicians, especially immunologists targeting GPI-anchored proteins and complements, and hematologists specializing in bone marrow failure.
