Unmet needs in clinical trials in CKD: questions we have not answered and answers we have not questioned.

Many advances have been made in the field of nephrology over the last decade. These include an increasing focus on patient-centred involvement in trials, exploration of innovative trial designs and methodology, the growth of personalized medicine and, most importantly, novel therapeutic agents that are disease-modifying for large groups of patients with and without diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Despite this progress, many questions remain unanswered and we have not critically evaluated some of our assumptions, practices and guidelines despite emerging evidence to challenge current paradigms and discrepant patient-preferred outcomes. How best to implement best practices, diagnose various conditions, examine better diagnostic tools, treat laboratory values versus patients and understand prediction equations in the clinical context remain unanswered. As we enter a new era in nephrology, there are extraordinary opportunities to change the culture and care. Rigorous research paradigms enabling both the generation and the use of new information should be explored. We identify here some key areas of interest and suggest renewed efforts to describe and address these gaps so that we can develop, design and execute trials of importance to all.
