For your C3G and IgA Nephropathy patients life outside your office can be more challenging than imagined.

Your Knowledge Can Make a Difference

Complement-mediated glomerular diseases such as IgA nephropathy and C3G can cause a significant burden on patients and can potentially lead to kidney failure and transplantation.1,2

Understanding these conditions can help inform you on how to care for patients with these diseases.

Kidney icon
  • Patients with IgA nephropathy and C3G face the possibility of disease progression1,2

  • For patients who rely on supportive care and steroids to manage their disease, side effects may need to be managed3,4

  • There are no FDA-approved treatment options for IgAN or C3G that address a key pathogenic step in the progression of these diseases—activation of the complement system1,4-6
