Active Vitamin D And Reduced Dose Prednisolone for Treatment in Minimal Change Nephropathy

Traditionally MCN is treated with a high dose of prednisolone, which induces remission in 60-90% of patients. Prednisolone treatment contains numerous side effects and the current dose is empiric. Given the lack of efficacy evidence and the risk associated with the currently accepted treatment regimen there is a need to ...

Efficacy and Safety of Tacrolimus Versus Mycophenolate in Lupus Nephritis

There is accumulating evidence that tacrolimus (TAC) could serve as an effective medication for the treatment of lupus nephritis (LN). TAC is a calcineurin inhibitor, which is a key component in first-line combination immunosuppressive regimens after kidney transplantation, based on its proven efficacy in the prevention and treatment of allograft ...

ACE-inhibitors in Extracapillary Glomerulonephritis

The natural course of extracapillary glomerulonephritis is severe leading to End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or death in most cases. Despite immunosuppressive treatment, long-term renal outcome remains poor since active crescents usually progress to fibrotic scars with glomerular occlusion and disruption.In experimental models Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE)-inhibitor therapy targeting the over-expression ...

Adrenocorticotropic Hormone in Membranous Nephropathy

Patients with membranous nephropathy and nephrotic syndrome will be treated with ACTH for 6 months. Proteinuria remission at 12 months will be the primary endpoint. Different biomarkers including anti-PLA2R autoantibodies, circulating regulatory T cells, and autoreactive memory B cells will be serially measured to identify predictors of response to therapy.

Mycophenolate Mofetil Plus Steroid in the Treatment Of Patients With Progressive Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy

Idiopathic membranous nephropathy is the most common cause of nephrotic syndrome in adults. In recent year, IMN remains one of the most common glomerular diseases. Long-term remission and stable renal function can prevent idiopathic membranous nephropathy from progressing to end-stage renal disease. Cyclosporine and cyclophosphamide are recommended to be first-line ...

Treatment of IgA Nephropathy According to Renal Lesions

Currently, IgAN treatment recommendations are only based on clinico-biological parameters. Steroids therapy appears to have a major role in IgAN treatment, but previous studies evaluating steroids lacked of optimal control group and reproducible evaluation criteria. No prospective study with optimal RAS blockade had included renal pathology in patients selection criteria, ...

Therapeutic Evaluation of Steroids in IgA Nephropathy Global Study (TESTING Low Dose Study)

IgA glomerulonephritis is the most common primary glomerulonephritis, and immunosuppression with steroids has been suggested to be a potential protective therapy, although the benefits and risks have not been clearly established. The TESTING study was established to compare the effects of oral methylprednisolone 0.8 mg/kg/day weaning over 6-8 months, to ...

Phase N/A

Tacrolimus Combined With Entecavir on HBV Associated Glomerulonephritis(HBV-GN)

This study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Tacrolimus combined with entecavir antiviral therapy for HBV-associated glomerulonephritis in china. Tacrolimus combined with entecavir rapidly and effectively induced remission of HBV-GN in Chinese adults. Meanwhile, Tacrolimus may have a synergistic antiviral effect with entecavir. The study protocol was reviewed ...

ACTHar in the Treatment of Lupus Nephritis

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease of unknown etiology that mainly affects females of childbearing age. The disease is characterized by immune activation and the development of autoantibodies. About 50% of SLE patients experience inflammation of the kidneys. Lupus Nephritis (LN) is a major cause of morbidity and ...

Efficacy and Safety of a Combination of Mycophenolate Mofetil and Corticosteroid in Advanced IgA Nephropathy

The subject who signed the written agreement to participate in the clinical trial evaluates the conformity and then 1: 1 randomly allocated. The study group were taken 48 weeks with MYREPT capsules in combination with corticosteroids and the control group were asked to preserve the conservative treatment regimen prior to ...
