Second protein associated with common cause of kidney failure identified

17 noviembre 2014

A protein that turns a person’s immune system against itself in a form of kidney disease called membranous nephropathy has been identified by researchers. Membranous nephropathy occurs when the small blood vessels in the kidney that filter wastes from the blood are damaged by circulating autoantibodies. As a result, proteins leak from the damaged blood vessels into the urine.
