This study has been completed.
Stanford University

Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) Identifier:
First received: August 3, 2000

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the most sensitive outcome measures (functional or morphological) of a progressive renal injury in patients with IgA nephropathy.

II. Determine which of these patients are destined to progress to further injury in order to target them for therapy.

III. Elucidate the determinants of progression in those patients who exhibit evidence of either increasing impairment of ultrafiltration capacity or ongoing destruction of nephrons.

Condition Intervention
IGA Glomerulonephritis Drug: enalapril

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Primary Purpose: Treatment

Estimated Enrollment: 43
Study Start Date: May 2000
Detailed Description:

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Patients receive oral enalapril daily. Treatment continues for 5 years in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.

Patients undergo renal function studies every 6-12 months for 5 years. Patients undergo renal biopsy at 36-48 months after study entry.


Ages Eligible for Study:   13 Years to 60 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Histologically confirmed IgA nephropathy, diagnosed within the past 3 years

Clinical presentation of either isolated hematuria/proteinuria for less than 3 years OR

Acute nephritic or nephrotic syndrome

No secondary forms of IgA nephropathy associated with chronic inflammatory disease of the bowel and liver

No end stage renal failure as defined by the following: Glomerular filtration rate less than 15 mL/min AND Extensive glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial damage

No systemic lupus erythematosus or systemic (extrarenal) vasculitis (Henoch-Schonlein syndrome)

Healthy volunteers will be accrued as a control group

No other concurrent medical or psychiatric illness that would preclude study
