Projekt C1

Hamburg Glomerulonephritis Registry

The Hamburg Glomerulonephritis Registry is an integral part of the CRC1192. Its purpose is to study a large cohort of patients with immune-mediated glomerular diseases including membranous nephropathy (MN), membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN/C3 glomerulopathy), ANCA-associated glomerulonephritis, lupus nephritis, anti GBM nephritis, fibrillary glomerulonephritis, minimal change disease (MCD), primary focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), etc. Renal biopsies, blood samples as well as genetic and clinical data will be collected from all patients included in the registry. Starting point for data collection will be the renal biopsy, followed by regular clinical and laboratory assessments of the participating patients. Participants will be followed longitudinally to enable the PIs of the CRC to investigate the pathomechanisms of disease, characterise prognostic factors, response to therapy, and disease progression, with the ultimate objective to cure these glomerular diseases.

For further information about the Hamburg Glomerulonephritis Registry can be found here.
