Urinary C3dg and C5b-9 indicate active immune disease in human membranous nephropathy.

Abstract

We have measured complement activation markers, C3dg and C5b-9 in plasma and urine from patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy and IgA nephropathy. There was no significant difference in levels of plasma C5b-9 between the patient groups. However, high plasma concentrations of C3dg were associated significantly with IgA nephropathy with 45% of… (More)
