Osteopathic palpation study

An osteopathic palpation study seeks 20 male and female participants between the ages of 35 and 60 years residing in the GTA with Chronic Kidney Disease (grade 3, 4) with an eGFR rate of < 44 mL/min/1.73m2. Participants will undergo a palpation assessment twice in October, 2017 and March, 2018. The objective of this study is to evaluate the proposed palpatory method as an osteopathic assessment tool in delineating pathological from non-pathological tissue. Participants will have the opportunity to win an IPad Pro via a lucky draw conducted at the end of the research study.

Please contact Ryan Parker or Kanchan Masand by September 15th, 2017 via email osteopalpationstudy17@gmail.com for more information regarding this research study.

  • Are 16 years of age or older, and
  • Have been diagnosed with Alport syndrome

Information obtained from this study is critical in designing future clinical trials in patients with Alport syndrome. The ATHENA study is designed to learn more about the changes in the kidneys in patients with Alport syndrome. It is an observational study and does not involve the use of any investigational drugs.
