CHILDNEPH Goals

  • To understand the differences in nephrotic syndrome treatment across Canada

  • To understand the effect of differences in treatment in terms of steroid exposure and relapse rates

  • To develop standardized treatments for nephrotic syndrome

Our Steps

  • Recruit children presenting with nephrotic syndrome from all pediatric nephrology centres in Canada

  • Collect information on disease course, treatments and other clinical data

  • Analyze data to determine what factors are driving variability in treatment and to determine if variation affects the clinical course of patients

  • Develop standardized treatments to treat childhood nephrotic syndrome which can be adopted across Canada
