- Investigator: Manish Anand
- Type of Study: Drug
IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody known as immunoglobulin A builds up in the kidneys and causes inflammation and scarring within the kidney. It is most often diagnosed with a kidney biopsy. For many people with IgAN, this damage to the kidneys can worsen over time, and can result in severe kidney disease and/or high levels of protein in the urine (proteinuria). Currently there are no proven treatments for IgAN. This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a new oral medication, called LNP023, which is an investigational drug, and has not yet been approved by the FDA. The study is placebo controlled, meaning that half of the participants will randomly be assigned to receive LNP023, and half will be randomly assigned to receive placebo The study will last for at least 2 years, with study visits every 1-3 months.. Side effects from the medication may include susceptibility to infections, so you may receive vaccinations for the most common ones. Subjects are compensated for time in the study.
