Company Summary

Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is a sudden decrease in kidney function that affects 5% of all hospitalized patients (~ 1.2 million in the US) each year. With no treatment options available, AKI is associated with high morbidity and mortality; and imposes a huge financial burden on health care system.
