Description

Progression of chronic diseases in general and chronic kidney disease in particular has been traditionally viewed in the light of various contributors to development of glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial scarring culminating in renal fibrosis. Indeed, this dogma prevailed for decades underscoring experimental attempts to halt fibrotic processes. Breakthrough investigations of the past few years on stem/progenitor cell involvement in organ regeneration caused a conceptual shift in tackling the mechanisms of nephrosclerosis. It has become clear that the rate of progression of chronic kidney disease is the net sum of the opposing trends: degenerative fibrotic processes and regenerative repair mechanisms. The latter part of this equation has been by and large ignored for years and only recently attracted investigative attention. This book revisits the problem of kidney disease by focusing on regenerative mechanisms in renal repair and on the ways these regenerative processes can become subverted by an intrinsic disease process eventuating in its progression. Cutting-edge investigations are summarized by the most experienced international team of experts.

Review Text

"The authors of Regenerative Nephrology have empowered a group of the leading investigators to provide a comprehensive overview of regenerative processes in the kidney. It spans the subject from cellular physiology to models and the first clinical trials of stem cell therapy. This book fills a gap in this rapidly expanding field. It will be an invaluable reference to the specialist investigator and a useful overview for those in nephrology or regenerative medicine who wish to become fully up to date with this important subject."-- Christopher S. Wilcox, MD, PhD, George E. Schreiner Chair of Nephrology,Director, Center for Hypertension, Kidney and Vascular Health, Chief, Nephrology and Hypertension, Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC, USA

"Dr. Goligorsky has assembled an outstanding group of authors for his "Regenerative Nephrology" book. The publication of this authoritative work is timely. State-of-the-art knowledge about the phylogeny, ontogeny, and mediators of tissue regeneration is discussed and is critical in pursuing the potential role of stem cells in regenerative processes. The kidney is the organ responsible for total body homeostasis, therefore focusing on regeneration in acute and chronic kidney disease is very appropriate. Moreover, Goligorsky is an internationally prominent researcher in understanding the pathophysiology of kidney disease. Regenerative Nephrology has important sections dealing with the clinical aspects of stem cell therapy including potential risks and ethical issues. I highly recommend this important book, not just for scientists studying the kidney, but for all biomedical scientists, as the dawn of stem cell therapy in humans is emerging for many organs."-- Robert W. Schrier, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Colorado, School of Medicine, Denver, CO, USA

"With this book, Dr Goligorsky, along with his impressive collection of highly prominent authors, has certainly succeeded in achieving the goal of bringing an up-to-date review of the basic research of regenerative nephrology and its promising clinical applications to the attention of the interested reader. This is a truly international book; although the majority of the outstanding faculty is North American, excellent contributions have been written by Japanese, Australian and European authors.. This book is not only of interest to the basic expert investigator. Also, the interested teacher or clinician who wants to catch a glimpse of what will become possible in the near future in the treatment of a whole range of acute and chronic kidney diseases with these fascinating new tools will find this book a must.. Dr Goligorsky and his contributors have done a great service to most of us 'non-experts' by summarizing, in a brilliant manner, the recent advances in this field."-- NDT Plus
