- Angiotensin-converting enzyme genotype and outcome in pediatric IgA nephropathy. Santos, Delos M.; Ault, Bettina H.; Gharavi, Ali G.; Kritchevsky, Stephen B.; Quasney, Michael W.; Jackson, Elizabeth C.; Fisher, Kimberly A.; Woodford, Susan Y.; Mitchell, Bonnie L.; Gaber, Lillian W.; Arheart, Kristopher L.; Wyatt, Robert J. // Pediatric Nephrology;Jul2002, Vol. 17 Issue 7, p496
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) I/D polymorphism has been implicated as a genetic marker for progression of glomerular disease. Studies of ACE genotypes in adults with IgA nephropathy (IgAN) have yielded conflicting results. We performed ACE genotyping on 79 patients with IgAN diagnosed...
