Glomerulonephritis – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: (US)

Glomerulonephritis (GN) is a condition involving inflammation of the glomerulus, which plays an important role in the filtration of blood into the kidney. If the glomerulus becomes inflamed and damaged, there can be a decline in kidney function, leading to chronic kidney disease (CKD). While mild GN cases may not require drug intervention, severe cases are managed with therapies like corticosteroids and immunosuppressants. This content delves deep into the dynamics of the GN therapy market, examining the management of GN patients from the perspective of nephrologists. We focus on how GN disorders, such as immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), lupus nephritis (LN), and membranous nephropathy (MN), are being treated in the United States today and the factors behind those treatment decisions.
