Abstract

The value of randomized trials as the optimal method for determining the benefits of health care interventions in clinical practice has been highlighted repeatedly during the current coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Despite being considered an “academic specialty,” nephrology lags behind its internal medicine counterparts in the conduct of high-quality clinical trials. As a result, many of the treatments used in routine nephrology care (e.g., phosphate binders) remain poorly supported by evidence from randomized trials.
