Below are current clinical trials.1 studies in Kidney cysts
(open studies only).
Filter this list of studies by location, status and more.
The overall objective of this study is to define genes causing cystic kidney disease and to determine the degree to which variants at these cystic kidney disease genes underlie the clinical diversity of these disorders. This will provide an insight into the disease mechanisms, and explore novel mutation screening methods. A combination of mutation screening in clinically characterized human cystic kidney disease populations, gene hunting and exploration of incompletely penetrant alleles in humans will provide a comprehensive picture of how mutations cause the resulting phenotype.
