The Bio-Artificial Kidney will replace transplants and dialysis.  It has been in the research & development stage for over 17 years.  Dr. Roy needs to do a 3 month clinical trial on pigs, as pigs kidney's are the closest to humans, and we are hoping "HUMAN" clinical trials can start as early as 2017.  I am hosting my 2nd Annual Golf Tournament in support of the Bio-Artificial Kidney, as this is very near and dear to my own health.  I only have 1 kidney, and at the moment it is only functioning at 15%.  Transplant's do not last usually more than 10-15 years, but the harmful anti-rejection drugs harm other organs, where dialysis only last usually around 5-7 years - plus you are in a hospital hooked up to a dialysis machine for 4 hours every second day of your LIFE - not much quality of a life.  With the Bio-Artificial Kidney, we will only have to go in every 6 or 7 years and have a filter changed - giving us FILL quality of life.  This will help hundreds upon THOUSANDS of people WORLDWIDE, myself included.
