Third-party-funded project

Genomic Damage in Kidney Patients in Predialysis- and Dialysis Stage

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Kidney disease is associated with an elevated cancer incidence. We analyze the genomic damage in patients with kidney disease. Blood samples of patients in the pre-dialysis stage and dialysis stage (different treatments) are analyzed. In vitro investigations to understand the causes and mechanisms of this genomic damage complement the patient studies.

Key words:
    Kidney disease
    Genomic damage

Projekt period: from 09.2000 to 08.2003

Funding institution:
Sonstige private Mittel ( Verein zur Bekämpfung der Hochdruck- und Nierenkrankheiten Würzburg e.V. )
