Their findings, using a compound that inhibits a receptor known as c-Met, will… A new target in polycystic kidney disease   



Vasodilator hormone improved kidney function & blood flow in PKD model

After a four-week course of the vasodilator hormone relaxin, kidney function and blood flow immediately improved in lab rats genetically altered to model polycystic kidney disease (PKD), a life-threatening genetic disorder, according to research presented on Dec. 6 at the American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting in Denver.

In addition to widening the… Vasodilator hormone improved kidney function & blood flow in PKD model
