Just a couple more days until we announce the NephMadness 2017 champion!

Catch up on all the results posts here:

Saturated Sixteen | Effluent Eight | Filtered Four


The first games of the Filtered Four are complete. Here are the results:

The Left Kidney

The Finals.001

The left side of the bracket came down to the Glomerulonephritis regional champion, anti-PLA2r for membranous nephropathy, versus CRISPR-Cas9 from the Biomedical Research bracket. It was very close but CRISPR-Cas9 rode all the hype to a narrow victory.

CRISPR-Cas9 wins 5-4.

The Right Kidney

The Finals.002

Genes in ESKD Disparity from the Disparities in Nephrology region has been shocking the world. In a series of upsets this veteran team is making another run at the title. Take a look at the infographic. While not at Drosophila-level support, it is ranked seventh in popularity, out of a field of 16. And once again Genes pulled the upset, this time over the Diabetes Regional Champion and crowd favorite, SGLT2 inhibitors.

Genes in ESKD Disparity wins 6-3.
