Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is defined as massive proteinuria and hypoalbuminemia associated with dyslipidemia and generalized oedema in most cases. It is thought to be due to a plasma factor of immunologic origin. Most cases are steroid responsive. However, a considerable proportion of children run a steroid dependent course. Calcineurin inhibitors and alkylating agents have been classical treatment strategies for such cases, but specific toxicity limits the use of these drugs… Expand
TACROLIMUS DRUG LEVEL AND RESPONSE TO TREATMENT IN IDIOPATHIC CHILDHOOD STEROID RESISTANT NEPHROTIC SYNDROME.
TLDR
It is suggested that tacrolimus is an effective drug for treatment of SRNS in paediatric patients and there is no linear relationship between the drug dose, response and drug level. Expand

TLDR
In this pilot study, a HIV antiprotease drug reduced proteinuria and had a steroid-sparing effect in some multidrug-resistant/-dependent NS. Expand

TLDR
RTX treatment with a 15-month CD19 depletion period induced long-term remission after definitive CD 19 recovery in almost two-thirds the of patients without oral immunosuppressive drugs. Expand
Complications of nephrotic syndrome
TLDR
Renal histology reveals the presence of minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) in more than 80% of patients and the majority of children with MCNS who respond to treatment with corticosteroids or cytotoxic agents have smaller and milder complications than those with steroid-resistant NS. Expand
The Value of Monitoring the Serum Concentration of Mycophenolate Mofetil in Children with Steroid-Dependent/Frequent Relapsing Nephrotic Syndrome
TLDR
Mycophenolate mofetil is a reasonable treatment choice to reduce the number of relapse episodes and steroid administration in children with FRNS/SDNS. Expand
Cyclophosphamide versus cyclosporine A therapy in steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome: a retrospective study with a mean 5-year follow-up
TLDR
CSA is associated with a significantly lower relapse rate and significantly higher effective rate compared with CTX, especially in children with minimal change disease. Expand
Estimation of optimal minimum dosage of mycophenolate mofetil in children with various glomerular diseases
Background: Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), a common immunosuppressant and a 2-ethyl ester derivative of mycophenolic acid (MPA), has exerted therapeutic efficacy in several kidney diseases. Here, weExpand
Physiopathology of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome: lessons from glucocorticoids and epigenetic perspectives
TLDR
The data supporting these different (and probably combinatorial) hypotheses have been reviewed in order to identify and discuss the possible pathways implicated in the physiopathology of INS. Expand
Effects of Supplementary Vitamin D on Vitamin D3 Serum Level in Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Receiving Steroid Therapy
Introduction: Nephrotic syndrome is one of the most common glomerular diseases in children who are also at risk of metabolic bone diseases. In this study the effect of supplementary use of vitamin D3Expand
Use of furosemide stress test for edema control and predicting acute kidney injury in children with nephrotic syndrome
TLDR
FST may be used as a bedside test to help identify the children with nephrotic syndrome with intravascular dehydration who are at high risk for AKI and helps rational use of diuretics. Expand
