Treatment of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS) after kidney transplantation is challenging with unpredictable outcomes. The objective was to investigate the use of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) analogue gel in kidney transplant recipients with de novo or recurrent FSGS resistant to therapeutic plasma exchange and/or rituximab.

We present a case of a male patient with severe recurrence of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) after transplant.
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a pattern of kidney damage that can occur in individuals at any age, including children. Pediatric patients with FSGS require medication monitoring, growth...
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a histologic pattern of injury demonstrated by renal biopsy that can arise from a diverse range of causes and mechanisms. It has an estimated incidence of ...
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 purpose of this study is to analyze the safety, renal function, metabolic disorders and quality of life data in patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis treated with endovascul...

This project will test whether rosiglitazone,adalimumab,and/or galactose can safely reduce proteinuria (abnormal amounts of protein in the urine) and protect kidney function better than st...
A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.
A non-selective, calcium permeant TRPC cation channel that contains four ANKYRIN REPEATS and is activated by DIACYLGLYCEROL independently of PROTEIN KINASE C. It is expressed in placenta, lung, spleen, ovary and the small intestine, as well as by PODOCYTES in the kidney glomerulus. Mutations in the TRPC6 gene are associated with FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS type 2.
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.
An ApoL protein highly expressed by the liver. It has anti-trypanosomal activity through its ability to permeabilize TRYPANOSOMA membranes. Mutations in the APOL1 gene are associated with type 4 FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS .
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
