Podocyte Antigen Staining to Identify Distinct Phenotypes and Outcomes in Membranous Nephropathy: A Retrospective Multicenter Cohort Study

Recent years have brought the identification of M-type phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R), thrombospondin type-1 domain-containing 7A (THSD7A), exostosin (EXT) and neural epidermal growth factor-like1 protein (NELL-1) as established or potential podocyte antigens in membranous nephropathy. In a retrospective multicentre cohort study, we applied the gold-standard method of podocyte antigen…
