ISN North and East Asia Regional Board Webinar: Genetic and Clinical Characteristic of IgA Nephropathy in Asia – Implications on Therapeutic Strategies
This webinar organised by the ISN North and East Asia regional Board will address IgA nephropathy (IgAN), the most common form of glomerulonephritis worldwide. However, its incidence, gender distribution, clinical presentation and progress, and pathogenic initiating factors are largely variable.
To assess the heterogeneity of this disease, a clinical survey was recently conducted on the presentation and clinical management of IgAN patients in Europe and Japan. This clinical survey highlights similarities and differences in patients from different continents.
- Epidemiology of IgA nephropathy
- Mucosal immunity of IgA nephropathy
