Biomarker for Patient With Alport Disease or Highly Suspected for Alport Disease

Alport Syndrome is an inherited disease that primarily affects the glomeruli, the tiny tufts of capillaries in the kidneys that filter wastes from the blood. The disease was first described by an English doctor named A. Cecil Alport. This disease is caused by changes in genes (mutations) that affect type ...

Phase N/A

Pathogenesis of Glomerulosclerosis

The present protocol seeks to advance our understanding of sclerosing glomerular and tubulointerstitial kidney diseases, including but not limited to variants of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu). This protocol will encompass studies of the natural history, pathogenesis and treatment of these chronic kidney ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Markers for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and a related condition, collapsing glomerulopathy, are chronic renal diseases affecting the glomerular podocytes. Currently, over thirteen genetic mutations are associated with FSGS. We are interested in expanding our understanding of these and other genes that may cause FSGS and collapsing glomerulopathy. We will study individuals ...

Phase N/A

Immune System Related Kidney Disease

Patients with known or suspected immunologically-mediated kidney diseases, including but not limited to, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, lupus nephritis, and nephritis associated with other systemic or connective tissue disorders, will be evaluated at the Clinical Center. Patients who have immunologically-mediated diseases with potential for kidney disease will be evaluated ...

Phase N/A

Alport Syndrome Treatments and Outcomes Registry

Detailed Description: ASTOR is envisioned as a permanent organization sustained by private philanthropic and public funding sources. Recruitment of participants for the registry will consist of three approaches. First, pediatric nephrologists in the United States and Canada will be invited to participate in ASTOR. Activities of participating investigators will include ...

Phase N/A

Retrospective Analysis of Renal Prognosis in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

During 1993 and 2006, a total of 987 patients older than 20 years underwent native kidney biopsy at the Renal Division of this hospital. 404 patients with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis, and patients with secondary glomerulonephritis or other renal pathologies, such as diabetic nephropathy, lupus nephritis, rapid progress glomerulonephritis, ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Causes of FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome or Kidney Failure

The investigators are trying to learn more about the cause of kidney diseases such as Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic syndrome by studying genetics. The investigators are interested in discovering which genes play a role in causing a predisposition to FSGS/NS. The investigators also want to learn why FSGS/NS ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Mycophenolate Mofetil and Cyclophosphamide on the Lymphocyte Subsets in Patients With Proliferative Lupus Nephritis

This study investigated the effect of mycophenolate mofetil and cyclosphosphamide on lymphocyte subsets in patients with proliferative lupus nephritis. Patients with biopsy-proven Class III/IV+/-V LN were randomized to received: 1) prednisolone (0.8mg/kg/day) plus CTX (1.5-2mg/kg/d) for 6 months) followed by Azathioprine (AZA) (1-1.5mg/kg/d) maintenance; OR 2) prednisolone (0.8mg/kg/d) plus MMF ...

Phase N/A

A Prospective Controlled Study of Serum suPAR in the CsA-treated FSGS Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the improved responsiveness to treatment achieved by CsA in patients with steroid-resistant or steroid-dependent FSGS could be explained by CsA's inhibitory action on the circulating suPAR expression.

Phase N/A

Repository of Novel Analytes Leading to Autoimmune Inflammatory and Diabetic Nephropathies (RENAL AID)

RENAL AID is designed as an inclusive data and tissue repository that is capable of linking demographic, clinical, laboratory, histology, genetic and radiographic data into one interconnected electronic data collection instrument. It is hypothesized that by linking these typically disconnected data components into a single electronic repository, RENAL AID will ...
