BACKGROUND Recently, a Japanese model used to predict 10-year risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in IgA nephropathy (IgAN) patients was published. We tested the applicability of the Japanese model in predicting 10- to 20-year risk of ESRD and all-cause mortality in a cohort of Norwegian IgAN patients. METHODS A cohort of IgAN patients (1988-2004) were(More)
OBJECTIVE IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) is a common kidney disease which may entail renal failure, known as End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD). One of the major difficulties dealing with this disease is to predict the time of the long-term prognosis for a patient at the time of diagnosis. In fact, the progression of IgAN to ESKD depends on an intricate(More)
BACKGROUND Glomerulonephritis associated with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) is associated with increased mortality and a high risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Here, we investigated whether the prognosis has improved over the last 25 years. METHODS Patients were identified in the Norwegian Kidney Biopsy Registry. We included all(More)
