Urine angiostatin and VCAM-1 surpass conventional metrics in predicting elevated renal pathology activity indices in lupus nephritis.

Abstract

AIM The goal of this study is to investigate how urinary angiostatin, vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) and established measures of renal function relate to specific histologic findings in paired kidney biopsy samples from patients with lupus nephritis (LN). METHOD Urine samples were collected from 54 LN patients together with paired kidney… (More)
