Better Education on Glomerulonephritis: Improving Knowledge of IgA Nephropathy

To participate in this activity, please:

Nephrology experts Jai Radhakrishnan, MD, and Dana Rizk, MD, delve into the complex disease of immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN), addressing unmet treatment needs and novel frontiers of therapy. They discuss IgAN as a chronic disease, reviewing its pathophysiologic basis, morbidity and mortality including significant reductions in health-related quality of life, existing treatment options, and evolving new targeted therapies. The experts review treatment strategies and highlight case studies to depict key components of management and share their experience in conceptualizing this disease state with an eye towards improving long-term health outcomes.
