Clinical Trials

Thanks to research funded by the PKD Foundation, clinical trials are now exploring several new therapies for PKD. Patients wishing to participate or learn more will find specific information about the therapies below. To participate in a clinical trial, you will need to have a formal diagnosis of PKD.

Status: Recruiting
Enrollment goal: 2,850

Description:

The goals of the KNOW-CKD (KoreaN cohort study for Outcome in patients With Chronic Kidney Disease) study are 1) to establish a CKD cohort representing Korean CKD population for up to 10-year follow-up, and 2) to investigate the renal progression, mortality, complications, risk factors, role of biochemical parameters and the genetic influence.

Collaborators: The Rogosin Institute, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Temple University
Status: Recruiting
Age Group: 18 years and older
Enrollment goal: 300

Description:

To collect information about PKD so that investigators may fully understand its complications, including high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.  This information may also aid in the development of improved treatment strategies.

Repository Study of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

 

Observational

 

Sponsor:

The Rogosin Institute
Collaborators:

Weill Medical College of Cornell University

New York Presbyterian Hospital

Status: Recruiting
Age Group: 18 years and older
Enrollment goal: 300

Description:

The goal of this project is to collect data from a large population of patients with PKD.  Based upon the estimated prevalence of PKD (1:500 and 1:1000 live births), it is estimated that there may be 10,000 PKD patients in the New York City area.  This sample size far exceeds any database established thus far.  As many as 40% of affected PKD patients are reportedly unaware of a family history of this disease, in part because many patients may go undiagnosed until they present with a medical complication (e.g., hypertension, kidney failure).  Furthermore, this initiative will provide an opportunity to compare data from racially diverse populations.
