Tissue Engineering Models of Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Ko, Wei-Che.

Abstract: Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a life-threatening monogenic disorder where innumerable cysts develop in the kidney, leading to renal failure. There is no known cure, and animal studies, while beneficial, often yield mixed results when translated to the human condition. Thus, new opportunities present itself for the study of human ADPKD by utilizing tissue enginee... read more
