NEW!! Clinical Studies Map! October 14, 2014 by Chelsey Fix NephCure Kidney International Introduces Clinical Research Map October 14, 2014 We are excited to introduce a new user-friendly, interactive clinical research map. This map includes current clinical research sites and studies available to patients affected by FSGS and other Nephrotic Syndrome diseases. The map, which can be found here, will help patients sort through studies available to them. Categories include studies specific to adults, pediatrics, Nephrotic Syndrome, and FSGS, to name a few. “Patient participation is key to advancing research and treatment options available to patients,” says Marilyn Hailperin, the National Director of Research at NephCure. “This site map allows patients to view studies underway in their area.” This map is another way NephCure is living out our mission to support research seeking the causes of Nephrotic Syndrome diseases, to improve current treatments and, ultimately, to find a cure. Here at NephCure, we value the supportive role we play for our patients. Spreading the word about clinical research to our patients is a crucial aspect of this role, because, after all, patients power research! Link to the map: here.
