What is IgA Nephropathy?

In common case, when some harmful substances attack our body, the immune system will produce antibodies that will combine antigens to form immune complexes. And then circle system will eliminate these immune complexes out of the body.

As a result, plenty of IgA is produced and builds up in glomerular mesangial area that can induce inflammation and IgA nephropathy.
