Do you suffer from diabetic kidney disease?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for people with diabetic kidney disease (DKD).
Would you like to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, you’ll receive personal, study-related medical care from the study doctor and regular follow up of your DKD to monitor the effectiveness of the care you’ll receive. The results of this research will be used to find out if the experimental treatment being studied will be of benefit to others with DKD, and whether it will be made widely available to all Canadians with DKD. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.

- Are male or female, 18 years of age or older
