Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) as the first choice immunosuppressive drug in treatment of steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome in children.

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...

Regional variations in immunosuppressive therapy in patients with primary nephrotic syndrome: the Japan nephrotic syndrome cohort study.

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...

Positive effects of single-daily high-dose mizoribine therapy after cyclophosphamide in young children with steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome.

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...

Novel variations in NPHS1 gene in children of South Indian population and its association with primary nephrotic syndrome.

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...

Genetic variants in the LAMA5 gene in pediatric nephrotic syndrome.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
