An European commentary on the new CKD-MBD KDIGO guideline is planned
Bone Biopsy Registry
An EUROD Board Meeting was recently held in Madrid, and it was the first meeting of the board members that were not only nephrologists but also pathologists and endocrinologists. The EUROD initiative aims at revitalizing the bone biopsy policy in renal patients in Europe. Dr Pieter Evenepoel detailed the attendees on the purpose and methods of this new project of the WG. Both incident and prevalent cases will be eligible for inclusion in a registry that is expected to increase our knowledge of bone disease in CKD. Contacts are underway with Companies possibly interested with the project for fund raising.
Project: Independent contribution of CKD-MBD to mortality risk in CKD patients (Drs M. Vervloet / ZA Massy)
The CKD-MBD working group is cooperating with the European Society of Pediatric Nephrology in order to develop common specific lines of clinical research in the field of CKD-MBD, spanning both pediatric and adult nephrology. Two papers have been recently published in collaboration (see publications section).
