How can we treat polycycstic kidney disease?

Torry  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Chris

I do listen to you regularly on 702.

My wife has been diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease which her father has died of the cysts will eventually become so big that kidneys wont function anymore why cant these cysts be drained or dried up to prevent that or is there maybe stem cell treatment that can reverse this function.

Thanks
Torry Coetzee

What do you think?
