Translational Mini-Review Series on Complement Factor H: Therapies of renal diseases associated with complement factor H abnormalities: Atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Genetic and acquired abnormalities in complement factor H (CFH) have been associated with two different human renal diseases: haemolytic uraemic syndrome and membrano proliferative glomerulonephritis. The new genetic and pathogenetic findings in these diseases and their clinical implications for the management and cure of patients are reviewed in this paper.
