This phase 0 trial studies ixazomib citrate in treating patients with glioblastoma that has spread or returned after period of improvement who are planning to undergo surgery. When given b...
This study is for individuals with lupus who have developed complications in their kidneys, or lupus nephritis. The study will determine whether adding the experimental medication abatacep...
The aim of the open multi-center study is to determine an efficient and safe dose and dosing schedule of NKT-01 in induction of response in treatment of lupus nephritis.
The main objectives of this trial are to evaluate the long term efficacy and safety of different doses of BI 655064 versus placebo as add-on therapy to Standard of Care (SOC) during mainte...
This study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a novel chemical synthetic agent iguratimod as treatment of refractory lupus nephritis. All subjects should have at least one failed im...
Lupus nephritis, a well-known complication in systemic lupus erythematosus, is characterised by a proliferative glomerulonephritis or membranous nephropathy along with a full-house immunofluorescence ...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a severe autoimmune disease that involves multiple organ systems. Lupus nephritis (LN) is a complication of SLE and is associated with poor survival and high morb...
African Americans, East Asians, and Hispanics with systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) are more likely to develop lupus nephritis (LN) than are SLE patients of European descent. The etiology of this dif...
B-cells play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of lupus nephritis. Recently, a separate subset has been discovered characterized by expression of Granzyme B. The aim of this study is to investigate t...
Uric acid has been recognised as a potential marker of endothelial dysfunction and kidney disease but there are scarce data about its importance in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) nephritis. This s...
Glomerulonephritis associated with autoimmune disease SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. Lupus nephritis is histologically classified into 6 classes: class I - normal glomeruli, class II - pure mesangial alterations, class III - focal segmental glomerulonephritis, class IV - diffuse glomerulonephritis, class V - diffuse membranous glomerulonephritis, and class VI - advanced sclerosing glomerulonephritis (The World Health Organization classification 1982).
A form of lupus erythematosus in which the skin may be the only organ involved or in which skin involvement precedes the spread into other body systems. It has been classified into three forms - acute (= LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC with skin lesions), subacute, and chronic (= LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, DISCOID).
An enzyme that, in the presence of ATP and COENZYME A, catalyzes the cleavage of citrate to yield acetyl CoA, oxaloacetate, ADP, and ORTHOPHOSPHATE. This reaction represents an important step in fatty acid biosynthesis. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 220.127.116.11.
A group of inherited conditions characterized initially by HEMATURIA and slowly progressing to RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. The most common form is the Alport syndrome (hereditary nephritis with HEARING LOSS) which is caused by mutations in genes for TYPE IV COLLAGEN and defective GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE.
Enzyme that catalyzes the first step of the tricarboxylic acid cycle (CITRIC ACID CYCLE). It catalyzes the reaction of oxaloacetate and acetyl CoA to form citrate and coenzyme A. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 18.104.22.168.
