This is a very important enterprise for all renal patients. Nephrotic Syndrome patients both children and adults are being enrolled under the 'Nephros study' -please ask your consultant about it! This is a huge game changer and I know I said this before, but it is the truth the Bristol team and many others are working extremely hard to find new therapies to treat Nephrotic Syndrome.please get involved and spread the word about Nephros & NURTuRE enterprise in your facebook groups too -

The project has considerable backing from pharmaceutical companies, in a way that clinicians/academics can contribute and benefit from industrial research and development, and vice versa.

The collection will be overseen by a dedicated committee from the Renal Association and Kidney Research UK, who will govern how the information is kept safe, and used appropriately for research and patient benefit.
