Infections and the Kidneys.
The International Society of Nephrology and the Indian Society of Nephrology are pleased to invite you to the 2022 ISN Frontiers Meeting on “Infections and the Kidneys“ to be held from September 22-25, 2022, in New Delhi, India.
The Frontiers Meeting in New Delhi will focus on the bidirectional relationship between infections and kidney diseases. Infections can cause both acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) through a variety of mechanisms, while patients with all kidney diseases, especially those on dialysis and kidney transplant recipients, have a greatly heightened propensity to develop infections which adversely affect their long-term outcomes.
