Can you tell me anything about the new treatment for ESRD, that is trying to get approval by the FDA? I have been on dialysis for 5 years, and sure hope there is an alternate soon. Also,how long does it usually take to get approval from FDA ?

I am not aware of any new treatment for End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) that is being considered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If there is a new treatment before the FDA, the agency does not have a specific time table and will not approve any treatment until all questions about the treatment has been answered to the agency’s satisfaction.
