About IgA Nephropathy

Worldwide, Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common disease that effects the kidneys. IgAN is an immune-mediated disease that results in inflammation and injury to the kidneys.

For many people, symptoms of Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN) don’t show up until the disease has progressed and can sometimes not appear for years. Many experience:

  • Decreased urination
  • Fatigue
  • High blood pressure
  • Swelling/edema
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and appetite changes

There is no cure for Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN), however some individuals are able to manage their condition with medication from their doctor.

The purpose of the IgAN Study is to test the safety and describe the effect of an investigational medicine, in people with IgA Nephropathy.
