Join Us in Fighting Chronic Kidney Disease Caused by Variations in the APOL1 Genotype
If you have been diagnosed with kidney disease, have symptoms of kidney disease, or a family history of kidney disease, this clinical research study may be an option for you. Vertex Pharmaceuticals is researching how many people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) that is not caused by diabetes have a genetic variation in the apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1) gene. APOL1 is a naturally occurring gene that can be found in many tissues of the body, including the blood, saliva, and kidneys. People with CKD not caused by diabetes who have a mutation in their APOL1 gene have a higher risk of losing kidney function.
