New Rapamycin Clinical Study for Pet Cats (treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease)

A new study being started at the Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center:

Rapamycin in cats with chronic kidney disease

Purpose and Brief Explanation of Study:

Evidence exists to suggest that aging of the kidney may contribute to the onset and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Rapamycin is a drug that is a known modulator of the aging process and additionally may decrease the formation of fibrosis (scarring) in the kidney. A feline formulation of the drug is available and the purpose of this study is to assess the potential benefit of the drug in cats with CKD.
