Abstract

SuPAR levels lack sensitivity for differentiating between idiopathic and secondary FSGS. However, suPAR values greater than 4000 ng/ml are highly specific to primary FSGS, and as such, with a morphological FSGS pattern associated with non-nephrotic proteinuria, they would indicate a low probability of secondary FSGS.
