About this book

Clinical Nephrotoxins: Renal Injury from Drugs and Chemicals is a comprehensive handbook on all aspects of adverse effects by drugs and chemical substances on the kidneys. The importance of the toxicity of drugs and other substances for the kidneys is increasingly recognized.

The first, general part deals with themes as clinical relevance, renal handling, pharmacovigilance, urinary biomarkers, pharmacological, immunological and cellular aspects of nephrotoxicity, as well as animal and cell culture models. The second part includes the specific drugs; the third part gives the description of environmental and occupational nephrotoxins. The last part deals with the patient with some degree of renal failure, exposed to drugs and chemicals, the progression of renal disease, and how to adapt drug dosage.

In this third and completely revised edition, nine new chapters were added, from proton pump inhibitors to bisphosphonates, phosphate containing laxatives, oxalate, star fruit and smoking. All chapters were extended with up-to-date references.

The book is of interest for the nephrologist, internist, general practitioner, toxicologist, pharmacologist, anesthesiologist, epidemiologist, public health official, pharmaceutical industry, and national drug safety committees, among others.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The purpose is to provide a guide with balanced and agreed-upon information about renal injury from drugs and chemicals. … This book is a useful source of information for general clinicians, and nephrologists in particular. Intensivists, pharmacists, and investigators will also find it quite helpful. … The book is well written, easy to read, and covers essential topics in a logical sequence. … This book is particularly useful for nephrologists and I highly recommend it to medical and hospital libraries." (Aziz Chami, Doody’s Review Services, February, 2009)
