Medical Grand Rounds | David H. Ellison, MD: “Diagnosis & Treatment of Diuretic Resistance — Some Real Data At Last”

Ellison-David– Atuk Lecture in Nephrology –

Wednesday, March 23, 12:00-1:00 pm
Old Jordan Hall Auditorium

David H. Ellison, MD, is Professor of Medicine, Physiology and Pharmacology and Associate Vice President for Clinical and Translational Research at Oregon Health and Science University. He also directs the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute at OHSU.

Dr. Ellison’s research centers on effects of diet on blood pressure, on mechanisms of salt transport by the kidney, on the genetic basis of human hypertension, and on diuretic treatment of edema.  A long-term focus of his research is the thiazide-sensitive NaCl cotransporter (NCC).  His early studies helped define the distal convoluted tubule of the kidney and how mutations of NCC can lead to Gitelman’s syndrome.

CME learning objectives:

  1. Learn the definition of diuretic-resistant edema.
  2. Learn a hystiology-based approach to its treatment.
  3. Learn new mechanisms for nephrotic edema.
