Editorial issue 290

The 2 first papers for this 290th issue both were recently published in NDT. In the first one, D Kidder et al. publish a large case series of “Kidney biopsy findings in primary Sjogren syndrome”. In the second one, interestingly, T Stehlé et al. publish under the “The Bench-to-Bedside Transition” heading,  a paper devoted to “Phospholipase A2 receptor and sarcoidosis-associated membranous nephropathy”. The third paper is from a recent CKJ issue by Damian G. McGrogan et al. These authors review the “Current tools for prediction of arteriovenous fistula outcomes”.

The last 2 papers are from those recently accepted in KI. N. Pallet et al. report on the “High prevalence of and potential mechanisms for chronic kidney disease in patients with acute intermittent porphyria”. Finally, Ting-Tse Lin  et al. report a large sized study on “Primary prevention of atrial fibrillation with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing dialysis”.
