Abstract

Can treatment delay end-stage renal disease in children with Alport syndrome? New guidelines have been provided based on our ability to identify individuals at risk of early-onset renal failure and on evidence for blockade of the renin - angiotensin system that has been derived from Alport patient registries, other renal diseases and animal studies. © 2012 Macmillan Publishers Limited.
