2/1/2018 - What Researchers Are Learning about Fabry Disease

Fabry disease is an uncommon illness that can cause kidney failure. It is a genetic disease, and it affects men and women differently. Although it is rare, it is possible for kidney failure to be the result of undiagnosed Fabry disease. Ravi Thadhani, MD, MPH, Vice Dean, Research and Education Cedars-Sinai, fills us in on the details. He describes the classic symptoms of the disease, new treatments and therapies that are available even after the disease leads to kidney failure. In addition, Dr. Thadhani tells us who should get tested, and how you can volunteer to be screened in a clinical Fabry disease study.
