SEEKING PATIENTS FOR CLINICAL STUDY
We are seeking patients with kidney disease to participate in a University of Washington clinical study to generate stem cells from urine or hair samples. The stem cells will be used to generate new kidney cells for study of kidney disease and regeneration in the laboratory. The study is free and does not involve compensation.
Patients of all ages with kidney disease or a disease syndrome with a kidney component, as diagnosed by a nephrologist or otherwise qualified physician. This study is open to patients everywhere. Patients with sequenced genetic mutations are ideal candidates. Relatives of participants may also join the study.
