|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Humoral factors may cause idiopathic steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome (ISSNS). In the present study, we analyzed serum proteins using mass spectrometry (MS) to identify proteins associated with the pathophysiology of pediatric ISSNS. We collected serial serum samples from 33 children with ISSNS at the acute phase prior to steroid treatment (STx). We used surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time of flight MS for sample analysis. The intensity of an m/z of 8,915 was identified as protein X.
Our findings provide new insights into the pathophysiology of ISSNS.
