Mitigating Hyperfiltration-Mediated Kidney Injury
Tarak Srivastava, MD
Length of Episode
Thanks to the research being done in CKid, we know that children diagnosed with chronic kidney disease progress over time to dialysis and transplantation. That makes it very important to address therapies which can mitigate the progression of chronic kidney disease.
Joining the show today is Tarak Srivastava, MD, he has been awarded R01 funding from the National Institutes of Health to work on targeting EP2, one of the four PGE2 receptors to mitigate hyperfiltration–mediated kidney injury as a way to delay the progression of chronic kidney disease in children born with congenital anomalies of kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT).
