Program Overview

After a nearly-two decade period of inactivity and failed trials in diabetic kidney disease (DKD), recent clinical trials have suggested that a new approach to this complication of diabetes may reduce kidney risk. This presentation will review important epidemiologic aspects of DKD, its natural history and pathophysiology, and current treatment approaches. Finally, we will discuss recent clinical trial advances and preview ongoing large, Phase 3 trial programs.
