  • 2) In patients with hereditary nephritis, preserved alpha 5 staining indicates small mutations (eg, missense, splice site) and is generally associated with a better renal outcome, while loss of alpha 5 staining indicates larger mutations (eg, deletion, nonsense, frame-shift) and a worse renal outcome.

  • findings
  • 1) Approximately one-third of patients with established hereditary nephritis based on typical ultrastructural findings and family history show loss of glomerular basement membrane or epidermal basement membrane staining for the alpha 5 chain of type IV collagen. (testcatalog.org)
  • In order to re-evaluate current concepts of hereditary nephritis we studied the urinary findings, the course of the disease, and its genetic transmission in two large pedigrees. (annals.org)
  • patients
  • 3) Because alpha 3 and alpha 4 chains of type IV collagen are not expressed in the epidermal basement membranes, patients with autosomal hereditary nephritis have preserved staining for alpha 5 on epidermal basement membranes and, therefore, skin biopsy cannot exclude autosomal hereditary nephritis.

  • We identified 150 patients with hereditary nephritis. (annals.org)
  • Allergic purpura nephritis is a secondary disease, most patients are worry about whether it contagion, because this is not only related to their own health, it also affects other people's health, we hope the following introduction, give you a better understand of the question that is henoch schonlein purpura contagious?

  • What foods should patients with Henoch-Schonlein Purpura nephritis avoid? (kidneytcm.org)
  • among
  • The demonstration that hereditary nephritis is X-linked, at least in some families, helps to explain the difference in severity between men and women and the variable expression among affected women. (annals.org)
