While further research and testing is still needed, the work of doctors Sayer and Miles demonstrate that the abnormal cells in patients with cystic kidney
disease do respond positively to drug treatments.

Constantinos Deltas, PhD, and Mr Gregory Papagregoriou, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, in the next article focus on recent advances in the molecular biology and genetics of cystic kidney

Bunting, (29) in his review of cytogenesis, made the insightful comment that his 2 cases of cystic kidney
disease differed morphologically and clinically from many previous reportedly cases.
This very task has become much faster and easier in most cases, although there are exceptions, such as the MCKD1 gene for medullary cystic kidney
disease (MCKD) type 1, which remains stubbornly elusive (Figure 1 shows schematically the morbid cystic kidney
Earlier reports have depicted glomerular cysts and have portrayed similar cases of "congenital cystic kidney
with glomerular cysts" (2,3,4) (Figure 1, A and B).
These kidneys can also develop acquired cystic kidney
disease (ACKD), characterized by cystic dilatation of renal tubules, with an increasing incidence in parallel with the duration of dialysis (87% after 9 years).
