Abstract

New research suggests that rigorous blood pressure control is beneficial in early autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Although a positive effect on the rate of decline of estimated glomerular filtration rate remains to be demonstrated, this study is likely to change current treatment strategies for young patients with ADPKD.
