Titolo The epidemic of renal disease - what drives it and what can be done?

Contenuto Extract In summary, the worldwide epidemic of ESRD is an unwanted consequence of the improved material circumstances and longevity of modern life. As these desired circumstances spread from the economically developed to the developing world, it can be expected that increasing numbers of people will require RRT and that existing technologies will be required to meet the ensuing demand. ... Thus, it is reasonable to suggest that, for the near future, adaptation and translation of existing therapies to populations now entering the third stage of the epidemiologic transition, with its ?built in growth? of ESRD, will be a major public health and medical challenge.
