Alport Syndrome is one of the most rapidly progressive forms of CKD3-6

Although Alport syndrome may not be considered one of the most severe types of CKD, the condition causes a much more rapid progression to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and organ failure.3-6

ADPKD=autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.
*Based on data collected from 4 different studies.
†Based on the historical average annual estimated glomerular filtration rate decrease among pediatric patients (n=16/23) enrolled in the CARDINAL trial.

Keep Alport syndrome from going undetected

The severity of Alport syndrome makes early detection critical. Considering Alport syndrome when patients present with declining glomerular filtration rate—particularly when accompanied by hematuria and/or a family history of CKD/AS—may help accurately identify the condition sooner.1,2,8-11

Confirming an Alport syndrome diagnosis sooner is possible with genetic testing

Highlight Alport syndrome by recognizing the following signs:

  • Persistent Hematuria
  • Underlying Inflammation
