BACKGROUND Complement activation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of IgA nephropathy. The clinico-pathological significance of the glomerular deposition of complement breakdown products, C3c and C3d in IgA nephropathy remains to be clarified. METHODS We examined the relationship between glomerular staining patterns of C3c and C3d and clinico… CONTINUE READING
