So after it is resisted, it may be helpful for the deterioration of this polycystic kidney. The results of clinical trials have also shown that there are antagonists using this type of vasopressin, which can effectively slow down the progression of polycystic kidney bubbles, thereby slowing the deterioration of this renal function. This is a new treatment. A 60-year-old female patient, she was actually referred from a neurology department.
