CureGN Study Rationale, Design, and Methods: Establishing a Large Prospective Observational Study of Glomerular Disease.

Am J Kidney Dis 2019 Feb 9;73(2):218-229. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Center for Translational Science, Children's National Health System, Washington, DC.

Rationale & Objectives: Glomerular diseases, including minimal change disease, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, membranous nephropathy, and immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy, share clinical presentations, yet result from multiple biological mechanisms. Challenges to identifying underlying mechanisms, biomarkers, and new therapies include the rarity of each diagnosis and slow progression, often requiring decades to measure the effectiveness of interventions to prevent end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) or death.

Study Design: Multicenter prospective cohort study. Read More

Down-Regulation of miR-218-5p Promotes Apoptosis of Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells Through Regulating High-Mobility Group Box-1 in Henoch-Schonlein Purpura.

Am J Med Sci 2018 Jul 5;356(1):64-71. Epub 2018 Apr 5.

Department of Pediatrics, Inner Mongolia People's Hospital, Huhhot, Inner Mongolia, China.

Background: Apoptosis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) plays an important role in the progression of Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP). In the present study, we explored the function of miR-218-5p in HUVEC apoptosis and HSP development.

Materials And Methods: HSP rat model was established and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were isolated. Read More

Henoch-Schönlein purpura with acute pancreatitis: analysis of 13 cases.

BMC Pediatr 2018 05 11;18(1):159. Epub 2018 May 11.

Department of Pediatrics, First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, 19th Floor of Medicine and Medical Tech Building, 218 Jixi Road, Hefei, 230022, Anhui, China.

Urinary fibrin/fibrinogen degradation products measured using an anti-fibrinogen antibody predict orthostatic proteinuria.

Pediatr Int 2018 Jul;60(7):639-644

Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Yamanashi, Yamanashi, Japan.

Background: The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of urinary fibrin/fibrinogen degradation products (uFDP) measured using an anti-fibrinogen antibody in patients with orthostatic proteinuria (OP), and their use in differentiating between OP and glomerulonephritis (GN).

Methods: uFDP were measured using first urine in the morning (supine) and non-first urine during a hospital visit (upright) and then normalized to urine creatinine (uFDP/Cr, ng/mgCr). We compared (i) OP patients (n = 16); (ii) those in remission from nephrotic syndrome (NS, n = 14) and from GN (IgA nephropathy [IgAN], n = 14; Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis [HSPN], n = 12); and (iii) those with active GN (IgAN, n = 12; HSPN, n = 19).

Defective activation of the MAPK/ERK pathway, leading to PARP1 and DNMT1 dysregulation, is a common defect in IgA nephropathy and Henoch-Schönlein purpura.

J Nephrol 2018 Oct 1;31(5):731-741. Epub 2018 Mar 1.

Istituto di Medicina Genomica, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, 00168, Roma, Italy.

Studies on IgA nephropathy (IgAN) have identified, through GWAS, linkage analysis, and pathway scanning, molecular defects in familial and sporadic IgAN patients. In our previous study, we identified a novel variant in the SPRY2 gene that segregates with the disease in one large family. The functional characterization of this variant led us to discover that the MAPK/ERK pathway was defective not only in this family, but also in two sporadic IgAN patients wild type for SPRY2.

Histologic Features of Gastrointestinal Tract Biopsies in IgA Vasculitis (Henoch-Schönlein Purpura).

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 04;42(4):529-533

Departments of Pathology.

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis or Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) typically occurs in the pediatric population, although rare cases also occur in adults. Gastrointestinal (GI) involvement is common. The "classic" histologic finding in IgA vasculitis (HSP) is leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV); other histologic features in biopsies of IgA vasculitis (HSP) have only been rarely described.

Epstein-Barr virus-related cutaneous necrotizing vasculitis in a girl heterozygous for factor V Leiden.

J Dermatol Case Rep 2017 Dec 1;11(2):25-28. Epub 2017 Dec 1.

Institute of Pediatrics, Catholic University of Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy.

Background: Necrotizing vasculitides are basically characterized by vessel wall neutrophil infiltration and necrosis and they can occur as a primary process or secondary to an underlying disease. Although Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSp) is the more frequent primary vasculitis in childhood, sometimes it has to be distinguished from other secondary vasculitides induced by infections, drugs, vaccines, or immune-mediated disorders.

Main Observations: We report a case of a 14-year-old girl with cutaneous necrotizing vasculitis, appearing in the course of acute Epstein-Barr virus infection. Read More

Shared IgG Infection Signatures vs. Hemorrhage-Restricted IgA Clusters in Human Dengue: A Phenotype of Differential Class-Switch .

Front Immunol 2017 4;8:1726. Epub 2017 Dec 4.

Institute of Molecular and Genomic Medicine, National Health Research Institutes, Zhunan, Taiwan.

Phenotypic manifestations of infectious diseases are closely related to individual immune responses. Methods to extract information from patients' own immune reactions would be of great use for both diagnosis and treatment. Dengue fever is one of the diseases that clinical aggravations could occur paradoxically after humoral immunity appears. Read More

Glomerular Diseases in Children.

Adv Chronic Kidney Dis 2017 Nov;24(6):364-371

From Baylor College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and Texas Children's Hospital, Renal Section, Houston, TX; and Washington University School of Medicine, Department of Pathology and Immunology, and Department of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.

Unique challenges exist in the diagnosis and treatment of glomerular diseases with their onset during childhood. Mounting evidence supports the notion that earlier onset cases occur due to larger numbers of genetic risk alleles. Nearly all causes of adult-onset glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and thrombotic microangiopathy have also been described in children, although the prevalence of specific causes differs.

Value of the Oxford classification of IgA nephropathy in children with Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis.

J Nephrol 2018 Apr 28;31(2):279-286. Epub 2017 Nov 28.

Biostatistics department, University of Michigan, 1415 Washington Heights, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109, USA.

Background: The widely used International Study of Kidney Disease in Children (ISKDC) classification for Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) does not completely correlate with the clinical presentation and long-term prognosis of this disease. Primary IgA nephropathy (IgAN) and HSPN share common features; thus, the Oxford classification of IgAN might be useful in predicting the long-term outcomes of HSPN. However, its value has not been confirmed in children with HSPN. Read More

Mycophenolate mofetil following glucocorticoid treatment in Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis: the role of early initiation and therapeutic drug monitoring.

Pediatr Nephrol 2018 Apr 25;33(4):619-629. Epub 2017 Nov 25.

Pediatric Nephrology, Children's and Adolescents' Hospital, University Hospital of Cologne, Kerpener Street 62, 50937, Cologne, Germany.

Background: Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common vasculitis in childhood and traditionally considered as a self-limiting disease. However, renal involvement can unfavorably determine long-term prognosis. The reported regimens to treat HSP nephritis (HSPN) are diverse, indicating that the most effective treatment remains controversial. Read More
