Four-year research collaboration results in potentially lifesaving implantable kidney

An artificial implantable kidney may pave the way for a new treatment for millions of people with chronic kidney disease. A four-year research collaboration between UCLA and the University of Arkansas created a prototype artificial kidney able to purify human blood and remove its waste products without the need for dialysate, a solution that is typically used for kidney dialysis.
