Triptolide-Containing Formulation as Treatment for Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.
Verified April 2014 by Shanghai Changzheng Hospital.

Triptolide was shown in experimental studies to inhibit the cyst formation and growth in ADPKD models, while triptolide-containing formulation was revealed to potentially slow the disease progression in several proteinuric ADPKD patients in our clinical practice. It remains to be shown the effect of triptolide-containing formulation on total kidney volume (TKV) enlargement and renal function protection in ADPKD patients.
