Clinical Trials to Reverse Kidney Failure has Begun
Kidney Repair Clinical Trails Commencement
December 3, 2020
Dr. Liaqat Ali, Professor of Urology, Institute of Kidney Disease, and BCM lead surgeon, has begun performing ARTR™ clinical trials to repair damaged kidneys. This is the first big step to clear a procedure that will help revive the quality of life for many people around the world. Shown in the photo above, is the surgical team, with the shipping container, after completing open biopsy tissue collection surgery on two new ARTR™ treatment patients. The shipping container is a BCM designed 15-day cold box, used to transport human tissue over long distances.
The success of this clinical trial will allow patients with kidney disease or failure the opportunity to regenerate their own organ back to a healthy state without the need of a transplant or anti-rejection drugs. Being able to take one’s name off of a transplant list will feel like a weight has been lifted and will provide many people with hope for a chance to have a better quality of life without the complications of major surgery or long-term medication.
