Abstract

Background: The family of heat shock proteins (HSPs) contains several members that regulate the cell response to any hazardous factors to protect protein structure. The aim of the study was to determine whether serum levels of HSPs increase in children with IgA nephropathy/Immunoglobulin A-associated vasculitis nephritis (IgAN/IgAVN) and to assess their relationship with the prognostic factors.
