Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the improved responsiveness to treatment achieved by CsA in patients with steroid-resistant or steroid-dependent FSGS could be explained by CsA's inhibitory action on the circulating suPAR expression.

Condition or disease
FSGS

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 90 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Prospective Controlled Follow-up of Serum Soluble Urokinase Receptor in the Cyclosporine A-treated Patients With Steroid-dependent and Steroid-resistant Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis
Study Start Date : January 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2019


Group/Cohort
steroid-sensitive FSGS
steroid-dependent and resistant FSGS
Healthy volunteers



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. serum suPAR level when proteinuria reduction >=50% or complete remission [ Time Frame: 6 months after steriod alone or CsA plus steriod treatment ]
    serum suPAR level when proteinuria reduction of >=50% or complete remission occurs within <=6 months of steroid alone or CsA plus steroid treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. serum suPAR level after 6 months of steroid or CsA treatment without remission [ Time Frame: 6 months after steroid alone or CsA plus steroid treatment ]
    serum suPAR level after 6 months of steroid alone or CsA plus steroid treatment without remission
