Goals of presentation l.jpg
Goals of Presentation

  • Overview of condition

  • Observational studies

  • Relationship between proteinuria and renal impairment in patients with IgA nephropathy

  • Impact of various treatments (eg: ACEi, steroids, omega-3 fatty acids) on changes in proteinuria and progressive renal impairment

  • Relationship between early changes in proteinuria and subsequent fall in varying measures of GFR associated with these treatments

Iga nephropathy background l.jpg
IgA Nephropathy: Background

  • Original description by Jean Berger in 1968

  • Initially referred to as “Berger’s Disease”

  • Thought to have a benign outcome in ‘70s

  • Condition now known to be most common glomerular disease leading to ESRD worldwide

Definitions l.jpg

  • Measures of Proteinuria

    • Collection: 24 hour urine excretion rates

    • Analyte: Total protein

    • Analytical methods: Variable

    • Early change: One year in most cases

  • Outcome measures

    • Measures of kidney disease progression

      • Kidney failure/ESRD

      • Decline in mGFR/eGFR

      • 50% increase in serum creatinine (Scr)

    • Mean slopes

      • mGFR/eGFR

  • Retrospective evaluation of the association between rate of decline of renal function (CG-GFR) and multiple variables in 298 adult patients with IgAN

  • Age at presentation: 36+/-13 years (16-73 years)

  • Follow-up from presentation: 70+/-46 months (range 12-231 months)

  • Age at biopsy: 37+/- 13 years (range 16-74 years)

  • Follow-up from renal biopsy: 57+/-44 months (range 12-227 months)

Bartosik et al 2004 baseline clinical and laboratory data l.jpg
Bartosik et al. 2004Baseline clinical and laboratory data

  • CG-GFR: 76+/-35 ml/min (range 13-225 ml/min)

  • Serum creatinine: 1.54+/-1.0 mg/dl (0.5-8.4 mg/dl)

  • MAP-B: 102+/-15 mmHg (70-162mmHg)

  • UPEX-B: 2.3+/-2.3 g/day (0.1-21.6 g/day)

Bartosik et al 2004 variables monitored during follow up l.jpg
Bartosik et al.2004Variables monitored during follow-up

  • Slope of CG - GFR was derived from 10 +/- 7 values of serum creatinine in 90% of patients

  • Rate of decline of CG - GFR was -4.8 +/- 7.5 ml/min/year (0.4ml/min/month)

  • Five year renal survival rate from time of presentation was 80%

  • Ten year renal survival from presentation was 65%

  • Using only clinical and laboratory data, the only independent predictors of slope were MAP-FU and UPEX-FU. The overall model was highly significant (p<0.001)

  • MAP and mean UPEX over progressively longer periods of follow-up were significantly associated with rate of deterioration of CG-GFR

  • Prospective cohort study of 120 adult patients identified between 1994 – 1997 and followed until the end of 2002 or start of dialysis

  • Primary end point defined as 50% reduction of CCr from baseline

  • Risk factors evaluated included CRP, UPEX and advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP)

  • 51 patients reached the end point, including 30 patients who had to start dialysis

  • Baseline UPEX was 0.59 +/- 0.62 g/day in 69 patients who did not reach the end point versus 2.67 +/- 1.28 mg/day in the 51 patients who did reach the end point

1. Univariate Cox regression analysis showed age, proteinuria, hypertension, ACEi, CCr and AOPP levels to be significantly associated with renal outcome

Proteinuria >1g/day

HR (95% CI) = 16.41 (3.97-67.84, p=0.00001)

2. Multivariate analysis confirmed UPEX to be independent predictor of renal outcome

a. With CCr included: HR = 7.78 (1.81-33.4, p=0.006)

b. With CCr excluded: HR = 23.7 (5.35-104.8, p=0.0001)

3. Angiotensin II inhibitors were protective

HR = 0.19 (0.09-0.44, p=0.001)

  • Controls: 12 pts (57%) reached end point, p<.05

  • Renal survival at 4 years: 100% in Rx group, 70% in control group

  • Renal survival at 7 years: 92% in Rx group, 55% in control group, p<0.0

  • Examined data from 2 trials in patients with IgA nephropathy that had been conducted by the Mayo Collaborative Group to identify which determinants of proteinuria might provide the best predictors of ESRD after 1 year of treatment with O-3FA or placebo

  • UPEX was measured on 24 hour urines at baseline, 6 weeks, 6 months and 1 year in all patients

Donadio et al 2002 l.jpg
Donadio et al. 2002

There were 91 patients available for study after 1 year and 18 ESRD events after year one in Trial #1

There were 63 patients available for study after 1 year and 14 ESRD events after one year in Trial #2

Kobayashi et al 1996 l.jpg
Kobayashi et al. 1996

  • Ten year + study of subset of patients (n=46) with UPEX 1-2 g/day, CCr >70ml/minute, severe renal histology

  • Original cohort of patients = 363 ( 90 with UPEX above). Previous report on these patients showed persistent UPEX > 1g/day to be associated with progressive renal impairment

  • Patients “allocated” to course of steroids or non-steroidal therapy, usually in order of renal bx

  • Steroids – 20 patients; “controls” – 26 patients

Pozzi et al 1999 l.jpg
Pozzi et al. 1999

  • RCT in 86 patients with IgAN who showed

    UPEX 1- 3.5g/day, plasma creatinine < 1.5g/day

  • Patients enrolled over 8 years (7/87-9/95)

  • Rx: Pulse IV MP 1g/day x 3 consecutive days on months 1, 3, 5 plus PO pred 0.5mg/kg/QOD x 6m

  • 43 patients randomized to the steroid group

  • 43 patients randomized to the control group who received supportive therapy (BP goal 140/90)

  • Study conducted in 7 renal units in Italy

Pozzi et al 199926 l.jpg
Pozzi et al. 1999

  • Risk of reaching the 50% increase in serum creatinine endpoint was 59% lower in steroid treated patients vs controls (relative risk 0.41, 95% CI 0.17-0.98, p=0.04)

  • When the reduction in UPEX from 0-6 months was added to the model, this covariate was selected as significant (RR 0.48, CI 0.34-0.69, p<0.0001), and the beneficial effect of steroid Rx was lost from the final model

Yoshikawa et al 2006 l.jpg
Yoshikawa et al. 2006

  • RCT conducted by the Japanese Pediatric IgA Nephropathy Treatment study Group

  • 83 children < 16 yrs of age enrolled in 20 centers - 50/83 pts ( 60%) detected by school screening

  • Rx group: pred, Imuran, warfarin, dipyridamole

  • “Control” group: prednisone. Rx duration 2 yrs

  • ACEi prohibited in both groups

  • Primary end point: disappearance of proteinuria

  • Secondary end point: percentage of sclerosed glomeruli on follow up renal biopsies

Conclusions l.jpg

  • Severity of proteinuria is closely correlated with risk of progressive renal impairment in patients with IgA nephropathy

  • Reduction in proteinuria via multiple therapeutic interventions is associated with improvement in renal outcome

  • The impact of reducing proteinuria in this condition appears to be best attained when the lowering of proteinuria can be sustained
