BACKGROUND Reactive oxygen species and cytokines are reported to play a role in the proteinuria of nephrotic syndrome. The aim of this study was to investigate indirect evidence of oxidant activity together with leptin, lipoproteins and pro-inflammatory cytokines in children with steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome. METHODS A total of 40 children with steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome (20 with newly onset or relapse comprised group I and 20 in remission while receiving steroids comprised… CONTINUE READING
