ADPKD patients only

ICON Early Phase Services is conducting a research study for adults ages 18-70 diagnosed with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD). This study is being done to gain more information on a potential treatment for ADPKD.  The study drugs will be administered as an injection under the skin.  

Vital signs, ECGs, physical examinations and pregnancy tests will be performed. Blood and urine samples will also be obtained during this study.  If needed, an MRI may be performed on a different day than your initial screening visit. 

Participants will complete:

• 1 screening visit
• Up to 2  overnights ( not consecutive)
• 3 outpatient visits ( up to at least 6 hours on site)

To determine if you fully qualify, it will be necessary to obtain blood and urine samples – no fasting required.  If ICON does not have your medical records on file, you will need to provide medical records at screening. 

For more information, see below.

Qualified participants may be compensated up to $1100 for time and travel.
