Finally, about 50% of PKD patients have kidney failure by age 60. Thereby, to reverse end stage polycystic kidney disease, two therapeutic effects should be achieved. One is to shrink all PKD kidney cysts, and the other is to improve renal ischemia and anoxia condition and rebuild kidney structure.
