The ADPKD Registry was launched in September 2019. It is the first nationwide, patient-reported database for ADPKD, and so far over 1,900 people have signed up! By completing our modules, participants are providing valuable insights on ADPKD, diet and lifestyle, quality of life, living with liver cysts, family history, and pain. Each year, we plan to share with you what we’re learning through an Annual Report.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the potential value of patient-reported data to ADPKD research.
  • Summarize the impact that participation in the ADPKD Registry is making on the understanding of the disease.
  • Recognize the importance PKD Foundation places on the privacy and security of the data we collect through the Registry.
