  • Overview

    Despite the fact that many patients on dialysis suffer from chronic kidney disease-associated pruritus, or CKD-aP, a condition that significantly diminishes their quality of life, it remains both underreported and underdiagnosed. Tune in to hear patients with CKD-aP discuss their personal experiences before and after treatment with difelikefalin, a new FDA-approved therapy.
