Research Studies in Kidney Disease

Physicians in the Section on Nephrology are currently conducting two types of research studies.

(1)  For families with  inherited kidney disease with gout  (also known as familial juvenile hyperuricemic nephropathy or uromodulin associated kidney disease or medullary cystic kidney disease type 2), we are examining the rate of loss of kidney function and what factors are associated with this.

(2)  For families with inherited kidney disease without gout (also known as inherited interstitial kidney disease), we are trying to determine the genetic (DNA) cause of the disease.

If you are interested in these research studies, please email Dr. Bleyer at ableyer@wakehealth.edu or call/write:
