  • CONCLUSIONS: There was complete remission in one patient on ACTH monotherapy and in the other two when prescribed as a steroid-sparing agent in combination with cyclophosphamide. All three had resolution in proteinuria to less than 1 g/d and maintained their GFR to baseline values. There were no reported side effects at a once a week dose. This study illustrates that ACTH is an effective agent that is well tolerated with minimal side effects and can be used as an alternative to prednisone in patients with IgA nephropathy.
