Welcome to NAPRTCS
NAPRTCS is the definitive source of information for serious kidney disease in children. NAPRTCS Registries include information from over 20,000 children with kidney transplants, on dialysis, or with chronic kidney disease from over 100 participating institutions in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica. NAPRTCS has initiated eight NIH-funded prospective clinical trials resulting in over $20,000,000 of funding. NAPRTCS has also worked with major pharmaceutical companies to develop multi-center clinical trials.
Now, not only do we hope to register and follow greater than 80% of the children receiving renal allografts in North America, but to study the clinical course and natural history of patients with renal dysfunction and to continue following these patients as they move among the end-stage renal disease (ESRD) therapeutic modalities, thus allowing the NAPRTCS to become a complete ESRD patient data system.
