Balkan endemic nephropathy in Serbia: Current status and future research

During the 90s, wars and economic hardship hampered most attempts for serious research in Serbia, as well as in other BEN affected countries. This relative lull in intensive research provided an opportunity for identifying key problems and assessing priorities for future research. The following issues were singled out as relevant from this point of view: 1. What is the trend of BEN? Did it disappear? 2. Is exposure to the agent(s) still going on? 3. Which descriptive epidemiological features of BEN may be considered established and how they should be interpreted? 4. What are the most likely aetiological hypotheses to be pursued? 5. Assuring a proper study design. 6. Avoiding "circular" research. 7. Conducting transregional studies. 8. Ethical considerations. This first scientific meeting on BEN after more than a decade is an important opportunity to agree on priorities, establish interregional collaboration and proceed with research at an internationally acceptable and competitive level.
