If you are diagnosed with kidney disease, it means your kidney’s are damaged and cannot filter your blood correctly. This causes waste to build up in the body at an alarming and dangerous rate. If diagnosed with kidney disease, it increases your chances of having a stroke or heart attack. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), 14% of the U.S. population suffers from chronic kidney disease (CDK). Kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer annually. In 2013, more than 47,000 Americans died from kidney disease. NIDDK reported that the five-year survival rate for dialysis patients is only 35.8%, in comparison to a five-year survival rate of 85.5% for transplant patients. Approximately 3,000 new patients are added to the kidney transplant waiting list each month and 13 people die each day while waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant.
ENDONOVO THERAPEUTICS: CHANGING THE OUTCOME FOR KIDNEY DISEASE PATIENTS
Endonovo Therapeutics, Inc. (ENDV), a developer of non-invasive electroceuticals for the treatment of vascular diseases and inflammatory conditions in vital organs, announced last week that it has commenced a pre-clinical study to assess the therapeutic potential of its Immunotronics™ platform in the treatment of kidney disease. This platform aims to prevent and reverse inflammation and fibrosis in the kidneys. ENDV’s technology was shown to be a very potent anti-inflammatory device in a pre-clinical, pharmaceutical “gold standard” model of inflammation.
“We are excited to start our work on kidney disease and further expand our pipeline of non-invasive therapies targeting vascular diseases and inflammatory conditions in vital organs,” commented Endonovo CEO, Alan Collier.
This platform could truly transform the way we treat kidney disease patients and extend the lives of those affected, no longer making kidney disease a death sentence. ENDV’s Immunotronics™ platform is part of an emerging field called bioelectronic medicine, which seeks to harness electrical signals in the body to modulate the inflammatory reflex in order to treat deadly diseases without pills or chemo. ENDV’s technology is a non-invasive electroceutical device that harnesses magnetically-induced electrical field pathways in cells to illicit an anti-inflammatory response in tissues and organs. Endonovo is developing this non-invasive Electroceutical to reduce inflammation in vital organs in order to prevent organ failure and the need for transplants.
“Several kidney diseases have a strong inflammatory component and our aim is to demonstrate the anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic properties of our non-invasive electroceutical technology. Reversing inflammation in the kidneys that can cause injury, fibrosis and ultimately end-stage renal disease would represent a truly game changing application of bioelectronic medicine,” stated Mr. Collier.
It is vital to keep up-to-date on ENDV and their upcoming renal studies as they work tirelessly to change the biotech landscape. This pre-clinical renal study will be the first of several studies. Other renal origin studies coming up from EDNV include: including ischemia/reperfusion injury, acute kidney injury, and diabetic nephropathy.
