Special Editions

Nephrology – Open Journal (NPOJ) is a combination of two words, Nephros meaning “Kidney” and logy means “the study of”. It specializes in kidney care and treating diseases of the kidneys.

Nephrologists are also referred to as kidney doctors. Nephrologists are first trained in internal medicine before specialising in the treatment of kidney disease patients. They typically treat kidney diseases such as Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), acute renal failure, kidney stones, and high blood pressure, as well as educating patients on all aspects of kidney transplantation and dialysis.

However, Openventio aims to disseminate all detailed matters related to Nephrology to the entire scientific community for their benefit via its Open Journal, and it also provides invaluable and gratefully acknowledged logistical assistance.
