Post Approval Study of Liposorber LA-15 System for the Treatment of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in Children

Liposorber LA-15 System is a blood purification therapy that selectively removes malignant lipoproteins including low density lipoprotein from circulating blood flow and rapidly reduces the plasma cholesterol level. The system was originally developed for the treatment of patients with serious dyslipidemia such as familial hypercholesterolemia and then applied to improve ...

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 ...

Comprehensive Management of Diabetic Patients With Renal Impairment : Impact on Blood Pressure and Glycemic Control

Complications of diabetes are influenced by the quality of blood pressure control and of metabolic control. Several prospective studies have shown a positive effect of the implementation of such control, however metabolic and blood pressure targets are not achieved for about 30% of diabetic uremic patients. Our project aims at ...

Phase N/A

Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (F.I.N.D.)

The Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (FIND) is a multicenter study designed to identify genetic determinants of diabetic kidney disease. FIND is conducted in eleven centers and in many ethnic groups throughout the United States. Two different strategies are used to localize genes predisposing to kidney disease: a family-based ...

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

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

Molecular and Clinical Profile of Diabetes Mellitus and Its Complications

Genetic factors play an important role in diabetes mellitus, its risk factors and complications, but most of the specific genetic determinants remain unidentified. The molecular pathways by which diabetes-susceptibility genes influence risk for diabetes and related conditions are also largely unknown. This project will seek to identify, and quantify the ...

Phase N/A

Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network

Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (NS) is a rare disease syndrome responsible for approximately 12% of all causes of end-stage kidney disease (ESRD) and up to 20% of ESRD in children. Treatment strategies for Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD) and Membranous Nephropathy (MN), the major causes of NS, ...

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 ...
