To promote research to find a cure for PKD and improve the care and treatment of those it affects.
Polycystic KidneyDisease (PKD) is a genetic defect that causes fluid-filled cysts to form in the kidneys, disrupting their ability to remove harmful toxins from the body. As the disease progresses, approximately 60% of all PKD patients will suffer kidney failure. Dialysis and transplantation are the only available treatments for kidney failure, but neither will cure PKD. PKD is the most common life threatening genetic disease in the United States. PKD affects more than 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million people worldwide. Our purpose is to bridge the gap between ignorance and knowlege about PKD by promoting programs of research and fostering awareness among medical professionals, corporations, foundations, and the general public.
