Newer Therapies for Diabetic Nephropathy and Their Cardiovascular Effects

The American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology is seeking manuscripts to be submitted specifically related to new therapeutic agents to treat diabetic nephropathy.  Papers may address the cellular or physiologic mechanisms through which they provide protective effects to prevent or delay kidney disease development or progression, as well as their potential beneficial or adverse cardiovascular effects in the context of diabetes.

Authors should indicate in their letter to the editor and in the online submission form under “Manuscript Type” that the submitted manuscript is in response to a Special Call for Papers. Accepted manuscripts will be published under a distinct heading and will receive special attention and handling. Only those papers not requiring extensive revision will be published under this call. If you currently have a manuscript on this topic that has already been submitted and would like it to be included in this Special Call, please contact Dr. Darwin Bell, Editor-in-Chief via e-mail at
