C-Path’s PKDOC and The PKD Foundation Set to Collaborate Once Again
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is an inherited disorder in which clusters of cysts develop in the kidneys. There are more than 200,000 US cases diagnosed each year and many people with this condition have kidney failure by age 60. To meet the challenge in discovering treatments for PKD, C-Path’s Polycystic Kidney Disease Outcomes Consortium (PKDOC) is excited to announce a collaboration with The PKD Foundation, who’s mission is to fund research, advocate for patients and build a community for all impacted by PKD. The agreement renews the significant collaboration between C-Path and The PKD Foundation to facilitate existing and new mutually agreed upon programs to accelerate the pace and reduce the cost of medical product development for the diagnosis and treatment of PKD.
