Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Understanding
Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis: Overview
Focal Segmental glomerulosclerosis is a type of glomerular disease and describes scarring (sclerosis) in your kidney. The scarring of FSGS only takes place in small sections of each glomerulus (filter), and only a limited number of glomeruli are damaged at first. Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis affects both children and adults. Males are affected slightly more often than females. FSGS is not caused by a single disease. It can have many different causes.
The scarring may happen because of an infection, or drug, or a disease that affects the entire body, like diabetes, HIV infection, sickle cell disease or lupus. FSGS can also be caused by another glomerular disease that you had before you got FSGS. FSGS has different types based on the cause.
Below are the types of FSGS:
- Primary FSGS: This type of FSGS means that the disease happened on its own without a known or obvious cause.
- Secondary FSGS: This type is caused by another disease or a drug. Examples include: viruses such as HIV or drugs such as anabolic steroids that some people use to speed up their muscle growth
Early stages may not cause any symptoms. Signs and symptoms of FSGs include:
- Swelling in body parts like your legs, ankles and around your eyes (called edema)
- Weight gain due to extra fluid building in your body
- Foamy urine caused by high protein levels in the urine (called proteinuria)
- High fat levels in the blood (high cholesterol)
- Low levels of protein in the blood
A blood test, urine test, and a kidney biopsy will determine if one have FSGS.
- Urine test: A urine test will help find protein and blood in urine.
- Blood test: A blood test will help find levels of protein, cholesterol, and wastes in blood.
- Glomerular filtration rate (GFR): A blood test will be done to know how well kidneys are filtering the wastes from body.
- Kidney biopsy: In this test, a tiny piece of kidney is removed with a special needle, and looked at under a microscope.
- Genetic testing: A genetic test may be done to see if the patient was born with genes that caused kidney disease. This information may help doctor decide what type of treatment is best for the patient.
The type of treatment depends on the cause. Everyone is different and the doctor will make a treatment plan that is right for the type of FSGS. Usually, treatments for FSGS include:
- Immunosuppressive drugs
- ACE inhibitors and ARBs
- Diet change
Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Emerging Drugs
Sparsentan is a novel small-molecule candidate in phase III development for the treatment of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Retrophin is examining the ability of sparsentan to slow the decline of kidney function in patients with FSGS and IgAN. It is a single molecule designed to be a dual endothelin receptor type A (ETA) and angiotensin II receptor type 1 (AT1) antagonist. The investigational approach is to attempt to reduce proteinuria, a characteristic marker of kidney injury in both FSGS and IgAN, with sparsentan. Lowering proteinuria levels is associated with better outcomes.
CXA-10 is an oral nitrated fatty acid compound that acts through a constellation of actions including:
- Upregulation of Nrf2 pathways, a key pro-reparative and metabolic pathway
- Inhibition of NF-Kappa B and TLR4, key drivers of inflammatory molecules and pathways
- Inhibition of Xanthine Oxidoreductase, a key intracellular producer of Reactive Oxygen Species add that result in cellular oxidative stress
- Increasing the expression of heat shock proteins, which act as chaperones during cellular stress to restore cellular homeostatic mechanisms
GFB-887 is a TRPC5 ion channel inhibitor in development for the treatment of FSGS. TRPC5 is a calcium-permeable ion channel that has been implicated in the pathogenesis of FSGS by triggering a Rac1-TRPC5 disease pathway. TRPC5 represents a target for therapeutic intervention to halt progression of FSGS to kidney failure. It is currently in phase II stage of development.
