Latest Free Webinar

WatchThe HALT-PKD Study:
What Do the Results of this Study Mean for Me?

Presented by Ronald D. Perrone, M.D., HALT study principal investigator

This webinar shared the results of the HALT-PKD clinical trials, which were announced on Nov. 15, 2014, at the American Nephrology (ASN) Kidney Week meeting. This was the first prospective, randomized clinical interventional study for adults with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). These studies are important to the PKD community because neither the optimal blood pressure target levels, nor the best medications for control of blood pressure in ADPKD, were known when the study was started in 2006 (the study was completed in June 2014). Currently, the complications of hypertension, including stroke and heart attack, affect many more individuals with ADPKD than ADPKD-specific complications such as liver cysts or brain aneurysms.
