|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00920309|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (This study was stopped after larger studies published in the NEJM failed to show a benefit in treating ADPKD)

Currently the only approved use for rapamycin (sirolimus) is for immunosuppression after renal transplantation.
This trial is designed to determine whether rapamycin is safe and effective treatment for patients with polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Patients will be followed by volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to observe for change in kidney (and cyst) size. Blood and urine samples will also be collected to evaluate for change in biomarkers with treatment.
