Editorial issue 328

The first 2 papers of this (328th) issue of NDT-E eventually shed light on the hitherto unexplained association between skin ichtyosis and nephrotic syndrome. Indeed S Lovric et al and R Prasad el al publish indepedently in the same issue of the JCI papers entitled  "Mutations in sphingosine-1-phosphase lyase cause nephrosis with ichthyosis and adrenal insufficiency and "Sphingosine-1-phosphate lyase mutations cause primary adrenal insufficiency and steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome".
Next L Wirken  et al report in NDT on "Pre-donation cognitions of potential living organ donors: the development of the Donation Cognition Instrument in potential kidney donors".
Next LA Tjaden LA et al again in NDT report on "Racial variation in cardiovascular disease risk factors among European children on renal replacement therapy-results from the European Society of Paediatric Nephrology/European Renal Association - European Dialysis and Transplant Association Registry".
Finally L Golbin  et al. report an interesting  update on a controversial entity "Warfarin-related nephropathy induced by three different vitamin K antagonists : analysis of 13 biopsy-proven cases".

CME lectures   
The 2 CME lectures released with issue both deal with peritoneal dialysis. Pr. Bert Bammens (Leuven, Belgium) first discusses "Peritoneal membrane physiology and anatomy in 2016".
And Pr. Simon Davies (Stoke-on-Trent, UK) discusses "Keeping the patient euvolemic".
