2 junio 2015

A new technique for treating polycystic kidney disease has been identified by researchers. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder where fluid filled cysts grow in kidneys and destroy normal renal tissue. It is the world’s most common inherited kidney disease, affecting between 1 in 400 and 1 in 1000 people worldwide — around 12.5 million individuals.
