Association of phospholipase A2 receptor 1 polymorphisms with idiopathic membranous nephropathy
in Chinese patients in Taiwan.
Effects of Rhizoma Paridis on activation of NF-[kappa]B p65 and secretion of collagen IV in the kidney of rats with membranous nephropathy
The most likely diagnosis for this patient's glomerular disease is minimal change disease, with membranous nephropathy
being a close second.
Therefore, non proliferative lesions (such as diabetic nephropathy, amyloidosis, and secondary minimal-change disease, membranous nephropathy
, or focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) are unlikely.
NS can result from several underlying conditions, and prescribing physicians indicate that Acthar is most commonly being prescribed for patients who have proteinuria and suffer from NS due to idiopathic membranous nephropathy
, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), IgA nephropathy, minimal change disease and lupus nephritis.
and FSGS have similar clinical manifestations but have different disease pathogeneses.
, also known as membranous glomerulopathy or membranous GN, is a common cause of adult-onset nephrotic syndrome.
When the cutoff value of urinary L-PGDS was set at 284 mg/mol Cr, which was the 95th percentile of the controls, the sensitivity for each renal disease was as follows: diabetic nephropathy, 74%; IgA nephropathy, 55%; membranous nephropathy
, 50%; focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, 50%; chronic glomerulonephritis, 83%; and chronic renal failure, 86%.

It may also be extremely difficult if not impossible to perform GBM measurements in some cases where there is an immune complex-related glomerular disease, particularly membranous nephropathy
, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, or fibrillary glomerulonephritis.
The diagnoses of the patients included segmental glomerular sclerosis, membranous glomerulopathy, membranous lupus nephritis, necrosis, membranous nephropathy
, interstitial fibrosis, and sclerosis of glomeruli.
