Thirty-two adult patients with minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) were studied in order to clarify the characteristics of the immune system in MCNS and their relation to clinical activity. In the active phase (n = 17), serum immunoglobulin (Ig) M and E levels, B lymphocytes (surface Ig-positive cells) and their subsets, surface IgG, IgM and IgE positive cells; B gamma, B mu and B epsilon, were increased, whereas the serum IgG level and OKT3-reactive cells, peripheral T lymphocytes; T3… CONTINUE READING
