Name: Clinical and experimental nephrology
Most children diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome show favourable response to corticosteroid therapy, nonetheless 30% of patients have frequent relapses or a steroid-dependent course of disease. Cycloph...
There is evidence of the effectiveness of rituximab in treatment of nephrotic syndrome in children. The present study aimed to assess safety and the therapeutic effectiveness of rituximab in steroid- ...
The lack of high-quality clinical evidences hindered broad consensus on optimal therapies for primary nephrotic syndromes. The aim of the present study was to compare prevalence of immunosuppressive d...
Many patients with steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome develop a relapsing course; therefore, alternative treatment may be necessary to avoid steroid toxicity. In this issue, a multicenter controlled...
Nephrotic syndrome (NS), a chronic kidney disease, is characterized by significant loss of protein in the urine causing hypoalbuminemia and edema. In general, ∼15% of childhood-onset cases do not re...
The management of steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) remains a persistent problem for investigators in part because of the wide array of pathogenic mechanisms that contribute to t...
Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (INS) is the first glomerulopathy in children and 60% of the patients develop Steroid-Dependant Nephrotic Syndrome (SDNS). Recently, rituximab (RTX), a humani...
Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome is steroid-sensitive in more than 90% of cases in children. However 60% of cases are steroid dependent and required treatment with immunosuppressive agent. Cy...
Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is among the most common pediatric kidney diseases and is defined as massive proteinuria (>40 mg/m2/h or urine protein to creatinine ratio >2 g/g) leading to hypoal...
In childhood nephrotic syndrome, the kidneys leak protein, causing body swelling and a variety of possible complications such as infection, blood clots, and kidney failure. The first-line...
A condition characterized by severe PROTEINURIA, greater than 3.5 g/day in an average adult. The substantial loss of protein in the urine results in complications such as HYPOPROTEINEMIA; generalized EDEMA; HYPERTENSION; and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. Diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome generally cause chronic kidney dysfunction.
Renal syndrome in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients characterized by nephrotic syndrome, severe proteinuria, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis with distinctive tubular and interstitial changes, enlarged kidneys, and peculiar tubuloreticular structures. The syndrome is distinct from heroin-associated nephropathy as well as other forms of kidney disease seen in HIV-infected patients.
Proteins found usually in the cytoplasm or nucleus that specifically bind steroid hormones and trigger changes influencing the behavior of cells. The steroid receptor-steroid hormone complex regulates the transcription of specific genes.
An androstene derivative that inhibits STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE and is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant PROSTATE CANCER.
A nitroimidazole that sensitizes hypoxic tumor cells that are normally resistant to radiation therapy.
