Coronavirus and PKD

How has COVID-19 impacted PKD research?

Clinical trials and other research studies may slow or pause for the near future. Health Canada announced their support of changes to study schedules, clinic visits and other forms of participation to protect the safety of participants. If you’re in a research study, contact your study team to find out how COVID-19 may impact your next study visit. Research done online or over the phone is not expected to be impacted.

Basic research labs (non-human studies) at many universities in Canada are temporarily halting research and closing due to concerns over the safety of the research staff. This may delay the work and ultimate results of PKDFOC-funded research studies.
