The elusive podocyte crossmatch for recurrent focal segmental glomerulosclerosis

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is a glomerular disorder with a high rate of recurrence. Although kidney biopsies remain the gold standard to diagnose recurrent focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, non-invasive prognostic assays could facilitate preventive treatments and offer insight into disease pathogenicity and heterogeneity. Srivastava et al. describe a simple, cell-based assay to predict recurrence of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Although the study needs to be optimized and validated, its novelty is that it does not depend on the specificity of a given permeability factor.
