The CKiD study was recently approved for an additional five years and $4.7 million of funding, making 20 consecutive years of funding. Historically, when participants developed end-stage disease, they left the study. The next phase of study will focus on the entire spectrum of the disease, starting with early CKiD in infants and following those who progress to kidney failure, requiring dialysis and transplant. Currently, CKiD is enrolling an additional 190 children in the new cohort. The study will attempt to detect abnormalities earlier in the process for more timely interventions.
