Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
New treatments of the future may use stem cells, cells that naturally occur in our blood or belly/abdominal fat, to help people with kidney disease. The purpose of this study is to understand the function of specific cell types and how well they may work to repair our kidneys. Two cell groups, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), will be examined. Study participants will include individuals with varying degrees of kidney function and potential causes of kidney disease. This information will help plan for future studies using stem cells to treat kidney disease.
