Disclosure(s): The ISN-Advancing Clinical Trials is a new initiative of the ISN intended to leverage existing infrastructures within ISN, in order to improve global nephrology community participation in clinical trial research. As part of its activities, the ISN-ACT highlights and sometimes analyzes important recent nephrology trials from latest medical literature every month through the ISN-ACT Trial-list. Editors of the ISN-ACT Trial-List also select clinical trials of particular impact, and collaborate with the @ISNeducation social media learning team to represent these trials visually. Join the ISN-ACT To generate more high-quality clinical trials and studies in nephrology, ISN-ACT is calling on investigators and interested individuals.
