Onco-nephrology is an emerging field in medicine. Patients with cancer may suffer from kidney diseases because of the cancer itself and cancer-related therapy. It is critical for nephrologists to be knowledgeable of cancer biology and therapy in order to be fully integrated in the multidisciplinary team and optimally manage patients with cancer and kidney diseases. In a recent international meeting, the key issues in this challenging clinical interface were addressed, including many unresolved basic science questions, such as the high tumor incidence in kidney transplant recipients. To this end, 70 highly qualified faculty members were gathered from all over the world to discuss these issues in 8 plenary sessions, including 5 keynote lectures. In addition, 48 young nephrologists and oncologists were invited to present their original observations that were highlighted in 2 large poster sessions.

Abstract

Onco-nephrology is an emerging field in medicine. Patients with cancer may suffer from kidney diseases because of the cancer itself and cancer-related therapy. It is critical for nephrologists to be knowledgeable of cancer biology and therapy in order to be fully integrated in the multidisciplinary team and optimally manage patients with cancer and kidney diseases. In a recent international meeting, the key issues in this challenging clinical interface were addressed, including many unresolved basic science questions, such as the high tumor incidence in kidney transplant recipients. To this end, 70 highly qualified faculty members were gathered from all over the world to discuss these issues in 8 plenary sessions, including 5 keynote lectures. In addition, 48 young nephrologists and oncologists were invited to present their original observations that were highlighted in 2 large poster sessions.
