NDT article
NDT - Article of the week
This week, NDT is happy to present a pro/con debate on Tolvaptan.
Tolvaptan offers hope to those with polycystic kidney disease and is the first treatment to slow kidney growth and eGFR decline. However, there is a not insignificant side effect burden and ongoing debate concerning when to initiate and when to cease therapy. These two papers debate the pros and the cons of tolvaptan use in polycystic kidney disease.
Pro: Tolvaptan delays the progression of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease versus Con: Tolvaptan for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease—do we know all the answers?
The papers are accessible free of charge until this Sunday at 23.59 (UK time). Do not miss them!
