Nanotechnologyand Kidneys

By Troy Sorensen


Comparison to today
Comparison to Today

  • Many of the people with dialysis and other things usually have a poor quality of life.

  • With an artificial kidney it could last indefinitely.

  • It would not require a wait to get an implant or the patient would not need to take immunosuppressant's.


Research on artificial kidney
Research on Artificial Kidney

  • It has been backed by the FDA with its innovation pathway a program to accelerate research.

  • They would use bottom up nanotechnology, using lab grown cells and nanofilters to remove toxins.



What we can expect
What we can Expect

  • If this is able to happen we could get many patients that are waiting for kidneys to be able to get back to a normal life

  • There were over 90,000 patients waiting for a transplant in 2011 with only 16,000 receiving a transplant.
