An international journal on experimental and clinical renal and cardiovascular research
This journal comprises both clinical and basic studies at the interface of nephrology, hypertension, and cardiovascular research. The topics to be covered include the structural organization and biochemistry of the normal and diseased kidney, the molecular biology of transporters, the physiology and pathophysiology of glomerular filtration and tubular transport, endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cell function, and blood pressure control, as well as water, electrolyte, and mineral metabolism. Also discussed are the (patho)physiology and (patho)biochemistry of renal hormones, the molecular biology, genetics, and clinical course of renal disease and hypertension, the renal elimination, action, and clinical use of drugs, as well as dialysis and transplantation. Featuring peer-reviewed original papers, editorials translating basic science into patient-oriented research and disease, in-depth reviews, and regular special topic sections, Kidney and Blood Pressure Research is an important source of information for researchers in nephrology and cardiovascular medicine.
