The KDIGO Onco-Nephrology Conference gathered together a global panel of multidisciplinary clinical and scientific expertise (e.g., nephrology, oncology, intensive care, hematology pharmacology, etc.) to identify key management issues in nephrology relevant to patients with malignancy. The development of newer and more effective cancer treatments has led to an increasing number of cancer survivors but unfortunately many of these treatments can be nephrotoxic. As such, prevention, early detection, long-term monitoring and treatment of ensuing problems in these patients is a growing problem.
Drs. Jolanta Małyszko (Warsaw Medical University, Warsaw, Poland) and Camillo Porta (IRCCS San Matteo University Hospital Foundation, Pavia, Italy) co-chaired this conference.
