Adult Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is an inherited disease, associated with the development of liquid-filled cysts in the kidneys and other organs, causing renal failure. Most patients with ADPKD have mutations in either PKD1 or PKD2 genes, which encode for the two components of ion channels located in cilia and endoplasmic reticulum. These mutations cause an increase in intracellular cAMP and activate mTOR, the AMPK pathway and Jak/Stat-dependent gene transcription ultimately leading to enhanced cell proliferation and survival in cyst epithelium and to fluid release in cyst cavities. The aim of the present review is to discuss the main literature evidence suggesting that these pathologically activated transduction pathways can be targeted with an integrated pharmacological and nutritional, pharmanutrition, strategy.

Abstract

Adult Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is an inherited disease, associated with the development of liquid-filled cysts in the kidneys and other organs, causing renal failure. Most patients with ADPKD have mutations in either PKD1 or PKD2 genes, which encode for the two components of ion channels located in cilia and endoplasmic reticulum. These mutations cause an increase in intracellular cAMP and activate mTOR, the AMPK pathway and Jak/Stat-dependent gene transcription ultimately leading to enhanced cell proliferation and survival in cyst epithelium and to fluid release in cyst cavities. The aim of the present review is to discuss the main literature evidence suggesting that these pathologically activated transduction pathways can be targeted with an integrated pharmacological and nutritional, pharmanutrition, strategy.
