The National Registry of Rare Kidney Diseases (RaDaR) recruited its 10,000th UK patient in January 2017. RaDaR is an initiative by UK kidney specialists (the Renal Association). It is designed to pull together information from patients who have certain rare kidney diseases. This will give a much better understanding of how these illnesses affect people. It will also speed up research.
This work is done in partnership with patients. Where the research leads to practical benefits, such as better diagnosis, treatments or general advice this will be publicised on this website.
Further details about the registry can be found here.
It is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work of all the renal units and Rare Disease Groups involved.
Congratulations and here’s to the next 10,000!
