Precision Treatment Options for Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a genetically inherited kidney disorder causing fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys. This leads to enlargement of kidneys and ultimately causes end-stage renal disease. Scientists at the Department of Medicine, McMaster University, Canada and University of Chicago have proposed precision medicine treatment options for Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD). The Precision Medicine Initiative defines precision medicine as "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.
