US Kidney Research Corporation (USKRC) is a Delaware C-Corp founded in June, 2015. USKRC is a leader in the field of artificial kidney research and involved in R&D of the world’s first waterless renal replacement technology. Contrary to dialysis, their new technology does not require purified water, dialysate concentrate solutions, or a dialyzer, providing significant advantages for both the patient and provider. Their novel waterless blood purification technology is leading to the creation of a truly artificial kidney to replace dialysis and native kidney transplantation. Additionally, the same technology is being used to develop a portable wearable artificial kidney, a portable tabletop device, and ultimately an implantable artificial kidney. USKRC is currently finishing their portable prototypes. The company says that with adequate funding their backpack and tabletop portable prototypes can be completed and ready for clinical trials within 2 to 2 1/2- years. The company’s future plans include advancing their technology, miniaturizing their prototype for use in an implantable artificial kidney. The company is also advancing their new non-clotting filtering technology, PD dialysate regeneration, and studying the role of middle molecules (uremic toxins) including a method to detect, identify, and isolate them. USKRC is working with Dr. Ira Kurtz, their Science/Medical Advisor/Board Member, whom also is the Chief of Nephrology at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and with researchers from the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Arkansas, headed by Dr. Jamie Hestekin.
