Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis

Idiopathic nonfamilial focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSG) is a disease with no treatment, whose usual outcome is end-stage renal disease frequently recidivating after transplantation. In close cooperation with the Nephrology and Paediatric Nephrology services of Vall d'Hebron hospital together with hospitals throughout the country that provide a significant number of patients, we intend to identify the hypothetical blood factor that causes the proteinuria observed in this disease. Identification of such plasma factor, by means of differential proteomic analysis, would allow the definition of therapeutic targets for the disease, which currently lacks an effective treatment. Our second objective is to find biomarkers that enable us to foresee a potential recidivation and the consequent loss of the graft following renal transplantation to FSG patients.
