Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common cause of illness, affecting as many as 50% of elderly cats. Most commonly used diagnostic tests cannot reliable detect the disease until the advanced stages. This late diagnosis makes treatment challenging at best.
Lincoln State Cat Club has sponsored a study where scientists used mesenchymal stem cell therapy to treat CKD with the goal of healing diseased kidney tissue.
We have also supported a study that hopes to identify factors predisposing animals to the development of CKD and help develop protocols for early diagnosis and prevention.
