(Let us provide healing through science and learning)
I acknowledge my great fortune to have learnt the science of nephrology and hypertension from the best in the field: Faisel S. Nashat, MD; Sir Stanley Peart, FRS; Gerhard Giebish, MD; and Barry M. Brenner, MD, and to have had the strong support for my work from George E. Schreiner, MD, who endowed the chair that I hold and Ms. Alma L. Gildenhorn, who chairs the board of the Cardiovascular Kidney Hypertension Institute that I direct.

(O precious golden fluid, may it flow in abundance)

I express my deepest gratitude to those most influential in teaching me the practice of nephrology and hypertension and the skills needed to develop a clinical and research program: William Slater, MD; William E. Mitch, MD; and Craig C. Tisher, MD.

In Memoriam
Stuart and Imogen Wilcox and Alex and Petra Wilcox
Therapy in Nephrology & Hypertension is a companion to Brenner & Rector’s The Kidney . It provides comprehensive information and detailed discussion on the most critical areas relating to therapy. The aim is to provide a thoughtful overview of the rationale, specifics, efficacy, toxicity, and limitations of current therapeutics in renal disease and hypertension. A world-leading panel of expert contributors has been challenged to summarize and critique current clinical trials and to make their own treatment recommendations based on the results of these trials or, when these are not available, their own best clinical practice. They provide the background to these decisions and the details of the drugs used. Where possible, they have included an algorithm to summarize the steps involved in selection and monitoring of drug treatment.
The first two editions were coauthored with Hugh R. Brady. Sadly, his new responsibilities as President of University College, Dublin, Ireland, have precluded his involvement in this third edition. He has been hard indeed to replace. Rather than select another co-editor, I have chosen to distribute the editorial duties amongst a group of seven section editors. Each is a world expert in the fields that he or she covers. This ensures that the best current authors in the field have been selected to write the chapters and that the material has been critiqued by another true expert. I have been delighted with the results. This injection of new ideas and directions has led to the inclusion of many new chapters. Thirty of the 93 chapters have new primary authors.
Every chapter in this edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. Where new treatment modalities have been discovered and released, or new trials are available, these are included in the updated chapters.
It is you, the readers, who will evaluate the success of this textbook. Your comments, criticisms, and suggestions following its publication are greatly appreciated. They will be incorporated into the planning of the next edition. Please write to me to express comments on specific chapters, whether encouraging or otherwise, and any specific information or topics that you consider are either missing or inadequately or incorrectly covered. It is my aim to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date, fully referenced, and authoritative review of all the major areas of treatment in nephrology and hypertension by acknowledged experts in the field. I have retained the original concept of many short chapters since I believe this makes a large book, such as this, more accessible and readable and allows me to draw on a large expert authorship.
I wish to thank Barry Brenner for his continuing encouragement and trust in me to edit this important companion to his authoritative book; the many individuals at Saunders and Elsevier Science Publishing who have helped me pilot this project from inception to completion, most notably Ms. Pamela Hetherington, Ms. Adrianne Brigido, and Ms. Susan Pioli, who have undertaken the lead roles in preparing this new edition for publication; Ms. Emily Wing Kam Chan, who so diligently kept authors and section editors apprised of the progress of chapters and collated the entire book as chapters were passed on from section editors; and my wife for her understanding and support for this, yet another major academic project that necessarily takes time away from what we would otherwise spend together. Most important, I thank the section editors for the extraordinary dedication that they have shown to this project. Not only did I entrust them to recommend the selection of topics and authors, but also to read and correct the first proofs and to be the primary contacts for the authors as their chapters made their way through the process of submission, selection, correction, and final printing. Finally, I thank with great sincerity the many authors who have devoted their time and effort in busy academic
