Research Project

Project Title:

Obinutuzumab in Primary MN (ORION)

Project Type:

Clinical Trial, Enrolment ongoing

Disease group(s):

Immune glomerulopathies

Project Summary:

Obinutuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody with enhanced B cell-depleting potential. Due to humanization and glycoengineering, this drug may be safe and effective in inducing disease remission even in patients with prior hypersensitivity reactions to rituximab. Moreover, it has been found to be effective in patients with membranous nephropathy who failed to respond to rituximab.
