Sanjeev Sethi, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology and Consultant in the Division of Anatomic Pathology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, was awarded a 2016 Eberhard F. Mammen Most Popular Article Award from Thieme, the publisher of Seminars in Thrombosis & Hemostasis. Dr. Sethi's paper is titled, "Pathology of Renal Diseases Associated with Dysfunction of the Alternative Pathway of Complement: C3 Glomerulopathy and Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS)."
“It is indeed an honor to be selected for one of the 2016 Most Popular Article Awards. Understanding the pathology behind C3 glomerulopathy and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome is the key to the correct diagnosis, evaluation, and management of these patients. Over the last few years, great advances have been made in understanding the role of alternative pathway of complement in C3 glomerulopathy and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome," said Dr. Sethi.
"With better elucidation of the pathophysiology, the next step is the development of new agents that can target the specific underlying abnormality or defect that cause C3 glomerulopathy and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome. I am very glad that our review of the pathology of these disease entities was well-received, and I would also like to sincerely thank my colleague, friend, and coauthor Dr. Fernando Fervenza, with whom I have had numerous great discussions and collaborations.”
Thieme created the Eberhard F. Mammen Excellence in Thrombosis and Hemostasis Awards in honor of Eberhard Mammen and in recognition of his contribution to this field and to Seminars in Thrombosis & Hemostasis, which he founded. The "Most Popular Article Awards” are given to the authors of the most popular articles published in Seminars in Thrombosis & Hemostasis. The awards are determined by the Editor in Chief on the basis of user statistics from Thieme e-Journals from the preceding two years.
