About Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)
ADPKD, caused by the mutations of PKD1 or PKD2, is among the most common monogenetic disorders and a leading genetic cause of end-stage renal disease. The clinical hallmark of this disease is the presence of numerous renal tubule-derived cysts.

ADPKD affects approximately 600,000 people in the US and 12.5 million people worldwide.
