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.
NAPRTCS is the only registry to collect information on children at all stages of chronic kidney disease. As such, NAPRTCS is able to follow children as their chronic kidney disease progresses to end-stage kidney disease and continues to monitor their care after dialysis is initiated and/or a kidney transplant is performed.
NAPRTCS’ clinical trials have enrolled more than 2000 children from over 90 participating centers.
