Nexus heads to Italy in April 2014

nexus ISN website banner 365x417Bergamo is the location for the upcoming Nexus Symposium taking place from April 3 to 6, 2014. Mark your calendar today. You can register online for this event soon and abstract submission closes on January 6, 2014. CLICK HERE for more information.

Owing to the theme chosen this time around, this symposium will be a little different. In previous Nexus meetings, most, if not all, participants were nephrologists. ISN Nexus Committee Co-chair Toshio Miyata explains: “Pharmaceutical representatives and regulatory authorities will also actively join our discussions on common global issues to delineate new frameworks towards efficient drug discovery and clinical trials in kidney disease.”

He explains the reason behind this choice of theme: “In kidney disease, very few drugs have been developed despite an increasing number of patients. Treating most chronic kidney diseases mainly relies on drugs developed for other conditions, such as anti- hypertensive, glucose or lipid lowering, or immunosuppressive agents.”
