With performing the first kidney transplantations in 1950s and 1960s, medical science hopes were raised to find out proper ways for treatment of End Stage Renal Disease or dialysis patients. But regarding to immunologic bases of transplantation and the use of immunosuppressant medicines and their side effects, patients may encounter to severe and inevitable side effects that sometimes may even lead to death. Therefore, in recent years, medical sciences in convergence with technology, pursue a new kind of approach so called "regenerative medicine"; however this method has its own challenges and complexities. But regarding to potential regenerative abilities of aquatic animals such as starfish, it may be possible to overcome on some of these challenges. The results of recent studies on evolutionary processes of human kidney and development and regeneration in starfish and, and presence of path and common cytokines among these processes proves this claim. This article presents some evidences that imply on practical usage of starfish in human kidney regeneration.

Keywords: End Stage Renal Disease and dialysis patients, Regenerative medicine, Starfish
