Do you have focal segmented glomerulosclerosis?

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a rare type of kidney disease that causes scarring in the filters of the kidneys. FSGS can make it hard for your kidneys to filter waste, which can lead to kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or end-stage kidney disease (ESKD).

Researchers with the Kidney Research Network are looking for people with FSGS confirmed by kidney biopsy or documentation of TRPC6 gene mutation ages 18-75.  They are recruiting patients to participate in a double-blind research study of a promising drug for the condition.  Research participants will undergo several appointments and health screenings, most of which can be done at home. Participants will be paid for their time.  If you think you may qualify, visit this website: for more information.
