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 study will investigate whether RE-021 (Sparsentan), a selective dual-acting receptor antagonist with affinity for endothelin (A type) and angiotensin II receptors (Type 1), is safe an...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of FG-3019 administered over 8 weeks to adolescent and adult subjects with steroid-resistant focal segmental glomerulos...
This study will investigate whether GC1008, an antibody which neutralizes TGF-beta, is safe in treating patients with the disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). The high...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the approved drug, rituximab, is effective in the treatment of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)
Treatment of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS) after kidney transplantation is challenging with unpredictable outcomes. The objective was to investigate the use of adrenocorticotropic hormon...
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...
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.
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 .
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.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
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.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
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...
