NDT - Article of the week
Evolving role of genetic testing for the clinical management of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease
Genetic testing plays an increasingly important role in the diagnostic work up of several kidney diseases. In autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), the diagnosis is usually based on imaging studies using well-established criteria. However, recent advances in genetics, particularly the advent of next-generation sequencing, will likely enhance diagnostics, provide novel insights into the pathophysiology of the disease and promote personalised medicine, especially in atypical cases of the disease. These advancements are summarised by Lanktree et al in this week’s "Article of the Week" in NDT.
The paper is accessible here free of charge until this Sunday at 23.59 (UK time).
