Recent years have witnessed significant progress in both the scientific basis and clinical practice of renal medicine. Recent advances range from the elucidation of the molecular aetiology of certain primary renal diseases, to the routine use of recombinant human erythropoietin for the treatment of the anaemia of renal failure. Despite such progress, many important questions remain unanswered. How adequate is the current provision of renal replacement therapy in the UK? Are recent trends towards high flux, short duration haemodialysis justifiable by risk-benefit analysis? The volume analyzes several developments in the science and clinical practice of nephrology, and highlights the areas in which research and the advancement of knowledge continue.
