Kidney disease

Hiromi I. Wettersten, Robert H Weiss

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Owing to the high suitability of urine for such studies and the ready accessibility of the urinary tract by means of its principal biofluid, there have been a growing number metabolomic studies that attempted to discover biomarkers and therapeutic targets for various kidney diseases. While there has been moderate success in this endeavor, future work will need to focus on extensive validation efforts to enable these potential markers and targets to be translated to the clinic for early disease diagnosis, therapies, and elucidation of new pathophysiological insights.
