    Amanda J W Branten
    Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology, University Medical Center Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    Nephrol Dial Transplant 19:2754-60. 2004
    ..Recently, ferritin has been identified as a predictive factor in the development and progression of atherosclerosis. This is the first report on serum ferritin levels in patients with proteinuria...

    J Am Soc Nephrol 16:169-74. 2005
    ..It is concluded that the present data validate the accuracy of Ubeta2m and of UIgG in predicting renal outcome in patients with iMN. These markers can be used to guide decisions on the start of immunosuppressive treatment...

    A J Branten
    University Medical Center Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    Eur J Clin Invest 33:449-56. 2003
    ..C3d is a presumed marker of complement activation. Its precursor C3dg has been detected in the urine of patients with membranous nephropathy. However, little is known of the renal handling of C3d or its excretion in other renal diseases...
