Urinary protein markers predict the severity of renal histological lesions in children with mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis

BMC Nephrology, 05/21/2012

Urinary protein markers are useful to predict the severity of renal histological lesions in children with mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis (MesPGN), which suggests that urinary proteins might be useful to predict the development and progression of renal histological lesions, and assist in evaluating the outcome and prognosis in children with MesPGN as non–invasive and easily repeatable indicators on the follow–up examination.
