Liver Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent investigations have established the existence of robust cross talk between the liver and kidney. These bidirectional interactions mediate deleterious effects of liver disease on the development and progression of kidney disease as well as effects of kidney disease on liver injury and hepatic drug metabolism. Although the full spectrum and consequences of liver/kidney cross talk remains to be elucidated, the clinical relevance of these interactions is clear.
