The primary objective of this study is to investigate the ability of Velcade® (bortezomib) to induce complete or partial remission in patients with severe IgA nephropathy.
The secondary objectives are to assess clinical outcomes relating to safety and efficacy, such as infection, malignancy, preservation of renal function, partial responders, relapse rate, and to study mechanistic assays to predict remission.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Chronic Kidney Disease IgA Nephropathy||Drug: Bortezomib (Velcade®)||Phase 4|
This exploratory single center, open-label, single treatment group assignment, safety and efficacy study will enroll 15 patients with severe IgA nephropathy. Subjects will receive 1 cycle of Velcade® to induce clinical remission. Follow-up visits will occur monthly for a year.
For this pilot study, the proportion of patients with clinical remission or partial response will be analyzed.

Experimental: Velcade® therapy
Patients with greater than 1gm of proteinuria per day will receive Velcade®.
Drug: Bortezomib (Velcade®)
Velcade® at 1.3 mg/m2, on days 1, 4, 8 and 11 (=1 cycle).
- Proteinuria [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]Quantification of urinary protein will be made after treatment by measuring 24 hr urine protein.
- Number of Participants With Complete Remission, Partial Response, or no Response. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Complete remission was defined as daily proteinuria of less than 300mg measured by 24 hr urine collection.
Partial response was defined as any reduction in daily proteinuria from baseline as measure by 24 hr urine collection.
- Serum Creatinine [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]Preservation of renal function will be assessed.
- Number of Participants With Abnormal Lab Values or Infections Related to Exposure to Study Medication. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Complete blood count will be checked at regular intervals to monitor for anemia; liver panel; serum immunoglobulin profile will also be followed.
