Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP) nephritis and primary IgA nephropathy (pIgAN) present with glomerular IgA deposits, but differ with regard to clinical features. The suspected involvement of different immune system pathways is largely unknown. This study was aimed at investigating some of the immunological features including Toll-like receptors (TLR),(More)
The benefits of tonsillectomy in IgA nephropathy (IgAN) are still debated. Tonsillectomy may remove pathogen sources and reduce the mucosal associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), limiting degalactosylated IgA1 (deGal-IgA1) production, which is considered to be the initiating pathogenetic event leading to IgA glomerular deposition. In the European network(More)
Background Early and accurate assessment of renal function is required for the successful detection and treatment of acute kidney injury (AKI). However, only retention parameters such as plasma urea and creatinine, and the indirect estimation of glomerular filtration rate are commonly available. Methods Here, we measured the kinetics of plasma fluorescein(More)
