Sadly, polycystic kidney disease cannot be cured for now. But this does not mean that patient can do nothing other than waiting for kidney transplant. Although this genetic disease cannot be cured, it can be brought under control through comprehensive treatment. In all, there is great hope for patients to live a longer and better life. To get polycystic kidney disease under control, patients can take the following measures:
  • Medicines for high blood pressure.
  • Antibiotics for infection.
  • Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to shrink kidney cysts.
  • Scientific diet.
  • Healthy living habits.

UT Southwestern and Regulus Therapeutics Inc., a biopharmaceutical company based in California, are working on a new treatment for polycystic kidney disease. The new treatment showed no evidence of toxicity in animals or in human cell tests. It is preferentially delivered to kidneys rather than the liver after being administered.

In the animal study, the afflicted mice show an approximately 50 percent reduction in kidney following treatment.

Early phase one clinical trials began last year, conducted by Regulus Therapeutics.
