Genetic studies of IgA nephropathy.
NEPHRON EXP NEPHROL
E76 - E80.
IgA nephropathy is the commonest form of glomerulonephritis worldwide, but we still know relatively little about its pathogenesis. Potentially, genetic studies might provide new insights and suggest novel therapeutic approaches to this important cause of chronic kidney disease. Two approaches that are likely to yield new information are analysis of multiply affected pedigrees and large-scale, well-controlled association studies. Copyright (c) 2006 S. Karger AG, Basel.
