Regulation of autoantibody responses to glomerular basement membrane in man and experimental animals.

Abstract

Autoantibodies reacting with the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) are a rare cause of severe nephritis in man. Their development is HLA-DR-associated and their pathogenicity has been demonstrated by transfer experiments. Their production is spontaneously self-limiting over a period of years but irreversible renal failure usually occurs within weeks or… (More)
