Despite significant improvement in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease, the morbidity and mortality remain high. However more is now understood about the hormonal influence on bone and vascular structures, and there have been major advances in the field of bone and mineralmetabolism. This has lead to the development of new treatment strategies and agents. This new second edition reflects the most current thinking and understanding in this fascinating field, as presented by world basic and clinical experts.
Klaus Olgaard is Professor of Nephrology and Internal Medicine at the University of Copenhagen and at Department of Nephrology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark. His scientific interests are basic and clinical research in nephrology-endocrinology and uremia, especially related to physiology and pathophysiology of calcium, phosphoru...
