Details and patient eligibility

About

The researchers are testing adalimumab, a treatment which blocks tumor necrosis factor (TNF), to see if it changes levels of urine biomarker levels (TIMP1 and MCP1). The outcomes may help develop individualized treatment options for future patients with TNF driven Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) or minimal change disease (MCD).
