No Scientific Evidence to Indicate Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy
and Stem Cells Transplant are Effective Treatments for PKD

PKD patients around the world are being aggressively recruited by Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China, to undergo a treatment they call ‘Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy + Stem Cells Transplant’ for polycystic kidney disease. The PKD Foundation has asked Dr. Ben Cowley, Chair of our Scientific Advisory Committee, and Dr. Terry Watnick, Vice-chair, to review and comment on these claims.

They report there is currently no scientific evidence indicating these treatments or techniques are effective treatments for PKD. Dr. Gerd Walz, from the University of Freiberg in Germany, a nephrologist and PKD researcher, confirms the evaluation of Drs. Cowley & Watnick and is concerned that this therapy may result in even more damage to the kidneys and may prevent patients from having a transplant later.

As always, we strongly suggest any changes in your medical treatment, medications, diet or lifestyle be discussed with your doctor or healthcare team first. This is extremely important when considering undocumented and experimental treatments for PKD.
