Kidney Pediatric Accelerator Trial Clearing House (Kidney-PATCH) Pilot Program

Drug and device developers face major obstacles in conducting trials to advance diagnosis and treatment of children with kidney diseases, also known as Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The rarity of pediatric patients with kidney diseases and their broad dispersion across the globe contributes to these obstacles. The Kidney-PATCH Pilot Program addresses these issues and facilitates broad coordination of clinical studies amongst networks.


  • Enable feasibility assessment in terms of the available patient populations through data sharing and access to CKD pediatric registries
  • Facilitate assessment of the capacity of various pediatric kidney clinical trial organizations
  • Assist with identification of expertise that can provide consultation on study planning
