Advances in drug therapy for patients with kidney disease have contributed to increased exercise capacity, reduced cardiovascular disease, decreased renal bone disease, improved quality of life, and most importantly, reduced morbidity and mortality. New insights into the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD) have helped lead to the development of many novel drugs and treatments. The purpose of this article is to highlight some of the developments in nephrology pharmacotherapy that occurred during the first 40 years of the American Nephrology Nurses' Association.
