Project description

By a multicenter longitudinal follow-up study, the role of uremic toxins (UT) in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease in children is explored by determining the accumulation pattern of different UT in various renal pathologies and correlating these with comorbidities such as
growth and sleep quality, with CKD progression and the gut microbiome profile.
