  1. C3G is minimally responsive to traditional immune suppression and randomized controlled trials to support therapy are lacking (Nester CM, et al. Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens. 2013;22(2):231-7).
  2. Anticellular immune suppression and plasma therapy have limited efficacy in C3G (Nester CM, et al. Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens. 2013;22(2):231-7).
  3. The use of terminal complement blockade and a few other reports suggest that the anticomplement drug eculizumab may offer a therapeutic advantage in C3G (Nester CM, et al. Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens. 2013;22(2):231-7).
  4. It was seen in GLOSEN study that immunosuppressive treatments, particularly corticosteroids plus mycophenolate mofetil, can be beneficial in C3 glomerulonephritis. (Rabasco C, et al. Kidney Int. 2015;88(5):1153-60).
