Table 2 The results of immunohistochemistry examination in group A and group B

From: The continual presence of C3d but not IgG glomerular capillary deposition in stage I idiopathic membranous nephropathy in patients receiving corticosteroid treatment

  Positive part IgG IgM IgA C3c C3d C1q
Group A (n = 40) capillary lumens 0.95 ± 1.11 (52.5%) 0 0 0.03 ± 0.16 (3.33%) 3.00 ± 0.00 (100%)a 0
Group B (n = 34) capillary lumens 2.94 ± 0.24 (100%)b 0 0 0.29 ± 0.58(23.5%)b 3.00 ± 0.00 (100%) 0
  1. Group A: patients treated with corticosteroid before biopsy.
  2. Group B: patients treated without corticosteroid before biopsy.
  3. aP <0.01 versus IgG and C3c in the same group; bP <0.01 versus group A.
