OBJECTIVE Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a leading cause of end-stage kidney disease that requires immunosuppressive treatment as therapy. Few studies have been specifically designed to assess the efficacy of cyclosporine (CSA) in patients with steroid-resistant FSGS. This study investigated the efficacy of CSA-based therapy in steroid-resistant FSGS.
