Kidney Stem Cell Therapy

Chronic kidney disease affects over 10% of the global population, because of a rise in the aging population and underlying diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and hypertension.

Although a routine treatment for chronic kidney diseases, artificial filtering (dialysis) and multidrug therapy cannot reverse end-stage renal disease in most patients, and thus the regeneration of the kidney is a much sought-after alternative hypothesis using stem cell treatment. Currently, in the event of CKD, organ transplantation remains the only hope for patient survival. However owing to factors related to the shortage of organ donors and challenges of rejection and immunosuppression, chronic kidney disease patients face serious economic and health burdens.
