IgA nephropathy is the most common primary glomerulonephritis in developed countries. The primary defect lies in the abnormalities of the IgA molecule. The disease affects all ages, mainly in the young adults, and may recur in a transplanted kidney

IgA nephropathy, identified 50 years ago in France, is the most frequent glomerular disease worldwide. The course is variable, but in most of the cases there is a relentless decline in renal function, reaching end-stage renal failure in 10-60% of the cases after 10 years and in 40% after 20 years. These data justify the interest for finding a suitable therapeutic approach particularly in progressive cases. A supportive care, including renin-angiotensin system inhibitors is the priority in cases with slowly declining renal function, particularly when developing proteinuria.

IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common glomerulonephritis worldwide and remains an important cause of end-stage renal failure. However, the basic molecular mechanism(s) underlying abnormal IgA synthesis, selective mesangial deposition with ensuing mesangial cell proliferation and extracellular matrix expansion remains poorly understood. These novel findings regarding the molecular pathogenesis of IgAN will be helpful in designing future directions for therapy.

Since its first description in 1968, IgA nephropathy has remained the most common form of primary glomerulonephritis leading to chronic kidney disease in developed countries. The clinical progression varies, and consequent end-stage renal disease occurs in 30% to 40% of patients 20 to 30 years after the first clinical presentation.
