Study Design

Endpoint classification efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
rituximab 1000 mg infusion two weeks apart for a total of two infusions. Retreated with identical rituximab 1000 mg infusion two weeks apart at six months after the first infusion for a grand total of four infusions.

After successful enrollment, patients will be treated with an infusion dose of rituximab at Day 1 and at Day 15. CD 20+ cell count will be drawn pre and post infusion at Day 1, Day 28, Day 181, and Day 365. Patients will be retreated with a second dose of rituximab at 6 months independently of CD 20+ cell count.

      Official title A Single Center Pilot Trial of Rituximab in the Treatment of Fibrillary Glomerulonephritis
      Principal investigator Stephen B. Erickson, M.D.
      Description This is a Phase II, open-label study to determine if the use of Rituximab reduces proteinuria over a 12 month period and is there preservation of kidney function with the use of this study drug. Aim 1) Preservation of kidney function at 12 months as defined by stable or improved 24 hour creatinine clearance. Aim 2) Reduction in proteinuria at 12 months & improved quality of life at 12 months validated by questionnaire.
