“A series beginning in today’s Lancet seeks to provide a global perspective on kidney disease,” the journal reports in an editorial highlighting several articles on renal issues. “The prevalence of kidney disease is likely to be underestimated,” the editorial notes. The current issue of The Lancet, No. 9887, also includes several articles on H7N9 and maternal mortality in Senegal and Mali, as well as news articles on potential wrongdoings in clinical trial research in Germany and shifts in development aid in Russia (7/13).
