Nephrology Societies call for ensuring optimal care to patientswith kidney diseases during the COVID-19 Pandemic
5-Minute Survey for the Definition of Antiphospholipid Antibody Nephropathy:
Antiphospholipid antibody (aPL) nephropathy has long been recognized as a distinct and specific entity in patients with positive aPL. The use of aPL-nephropathy related terms varies among pathologists while reporting the biopsy findings of kidney involvement in aPL-positive patients (1). In parallel with the efforts to develop new classification criteria for antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), a group of investigators are conducting a survey of worldwide pathologists and nephrologists to assess whether there is an agreement with the definitions of aPL nephropathy, and to gauge whether any additional biopsy features should be considered.
If you are interested in participating in this survey, please click here. Those who participate will have the choice of being acknowledged in a future publication focusing on the definition of aPL-nephropathy. If you have any questions, you can e-mail Dr Medha Barbhaiya @ firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Surya Seshan @ email@example.com.
The society was initiated by a group of renal pathologists (Jay Bernstein, P. Burkholder, J. Churg, R. Cotran, F. Cuppage, D. Jones, M. Kashgarian, J. Kissane, K. Mostofi, and G. Striker), acting in large measure at the instigation of Conrad Pirani who served as acting chairman.
