The 2005 edition of the Renal Health Library [produced by the Cochrane Renal Group] is no longer available online via the web. The licence for the online edition ran from June 2005 - July 2006 and has now expired. The CD version is still available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the CD.
Due to financial constraints we were unable to produce the Renal Health Library in 2006, but we hope to be able to publish a new issue again soon.The Renal Health Library contains 80 full-text Cochrane reviews, over 8000 records of randomised controlled trials (both ongoing and published), as well as a selection of Non-Cochrane meta-analyses and studies of diagnostic test accuracy.
The Library covers kidney transplantation, renal artery stenosis, haemodialysis, glomerulonephritis, acute renal failure, diabetic nephropathy, peritoneal dialysis, chronic renal failure, urinary tract infections and diagnostic tests.
The Library has been supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Australia.
