Membranous nephropathy in 52 hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carrier children in Taiwan.
TLDR
It is suggested that HBeAg plays an important role in the development of MN in HBsAg carrier children in Taiwan, and factors other than H beAg per se may also play important roles.
The role of hepatitis B surface antigen in Nigerian children with nephrotic syndrome.
TLDR
Hepatitis B surface antigen was detected by radioimmunoassay in the sera of 18 out of 50 children with nephrotic syndrome and in 28 of 61 controls, indicative of an aetiologic role for HBsAg in these patients.

TLDR
The course of HBV-related membranous nephropathy in adults in areas where HBV is endemic is not benign, and regardless of treatment, the disease has a slowly but relentlessly progressive clinical course in approximately one third of patients.
of hepatitis B surface nephropathy Africans The frequency antigen in membranous Black and White South
TLDR
It is suggested that the high frequency of MN in Black patients may be associated with the high carrier rate (7 - 10%) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in the Black population.
Hepatitis B Surface Antigenaemia and Glomerulopathies in Children
TLDR
It is hypothesized that an impaired immune response in male children with lipoid nephrosis may account for both the hepatitis B virus infection and the development of the glomerular disease.
Hepatitis B virus-associated nephropathy in black South African children
TLDR
The natural history of HBV infection in black South African children with NS is delineated, with disease remission in HBVMN parallels elimination ofHBV antigens, particularly HBeAg, although biochemical characteristics were different.
Treatment of Hepatitis B Virus-Associated Nephropathy
Epidemiological studies have shown a relationship between hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and development of proteinuria in some patients (most commonly children), with a predominance for male

A renal biopsy study of hepatitis B virus-associated nephropathy in Korea.
TLDR
Even though HBsAg was not demonstrable within the glomeruli, HBV infection seems to play an important role in the pathogenesis of MPGN in Korean adults and MN in children.

TLDR
It was concluded that membranoproliferative GN was probably due to a hepatitis B associated antigen, but not necessarily to HBsAg.
Idiopathic membranous nephropathy in children.
TLDR
The relative benign course of the disease in the majority of patients and the morphological evidence of healing in one of them suggest a better prognosis than that reported by previous investigators might be particularly true for patients developing the disease at a very young age.

TLDR
Examination of renal tissue by a fluorescent antibody technic suggested that immune complexes containing Australia antigen might be involved in the pathogenesis of the glomerular disease.

TLDR
With one possible exception, the subtypes of HB(s)Ag-positive patients with liver disease reflected the predominant type in each geographic location.
Vertical transmission of hepatitis B antigen in Taiwan.
TLDR
It is indicated that vertical transmission from carrier mothers frequently occurs, at least in Taiwan, and may partially explain Taiwan's high prevalence of HB5 Ag.
