To investigate the relationship between the insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene and the onset and progression of IgA nephropathy, we studied this polymorphism in 48 patients (21 males and 27 females) with IgA nephropathy and 104 normal controls (51 males and 53 females) using the polymerase chain reaction… CONTINUE READING
