Interaction between PLA2R1 and HLA ‐DQA1 Variants contributes to the increased genetic susceptibility to membranous nephropathy in Western China
ConclusionThere are some differences in PLA2R1 distributions in PMN patients between previous literature and our study. Our results showed that interactions between PLA2R1 and HLA ‐DQA1 alleles increased genetic susceptibility to PMN in Western China.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The impact of HbA1c Trajectories on Chronic Kidney Disease Progression in Type 2 Diabetes
ConclusionsModerate ‐increasing HbA1c trajectory is associated with renal disease progression in patients with T2DM, independent of mean HbA1c. The deleterious effects of deteriorating HbA1c trajectory highlight the importance of achieving sustained good glycemic control in diabetes management.This article is protected by copyright.
