This retrospective study looks at the rates of complete and partial remissions (CR’s and PR’s) in adult-onset minimal change disease patients who are maintained on steroid therapy with those who have failed steroid therapy. CR and PR rates are also analyzed in patients failing steroid therapy and placed on second-line agents, including mycophenolate, calcineurin inhibitors, and cyclophosphamide.
