What we have now:

2. Much more successful and sophisticated outcomes of kidney transplantation.
3. More treatment options for glomerular diseases
4. A better understanding of anemia and bone disease in ESRD and CKD
Some Major Breakthroughs in Nephrology in last decade:

2. APOL1 gene story for AA and FSGS
3. Membranous Nephropathy is not idiopathic anymore
4. Rituximab for ANCA vasculitis and Lupus Nephritis
5. The knowledge of the T regulatory system in transplantation and glomerular diseases
6. Anemia and the Hgb target changes due to novel findings of CREATE and CHOIR
7. Late vs early initiation of dialysis question perhaps answered?
8. sUpar as the cause of FSGS
9. Pre eclampsia is a VEGF related disease that effects the kidney
