Mizoribine (MZR) therapy after cyclophosphamide (CPM) therapy may be an attractive option in patients with steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome (SDNS) for the purpose of maintaining remission. This is...
Mutations in NPHS1 can lead to disruption of the filtration barrier and cause proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome (NS). The aim of the study was to evaluate NPHS1 mutations, its susceptibility to the di...
Idiopathic membranous nephropathy is the most common cause of nephrotic syndrome in nondiabetic adults. The antibody most often implicated is the M-type phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R) antibody, fou...
In pediatric patients with steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome, recent trials have revealed that a 2-month, short-term steroid regimen is not inferior to an extended steroid course. However, the opti...
More than 85% of children and adolescents (majority between 1-12 years old) with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome show complete remission of proteinuria following daily treatment with corticosteroids. Pa...
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.
