The current study aims to observe the correlation between the expression of miR-152-5p in urine samples and the condition of IgA nephropathy (IgAN).


From January 2017 to October 2017, 40 patients with IgAN, 10 patients with mild glomerular lesions, 10 patients with membranous proliferative glomerulonephritis type I, 10 patients with focal segmental glomeruloscle-rosis, 10 patients with Henoch-Schonlein purpura nephritis, and 10 patients with lupus nephritis. Meanwhile, 25 healthy controls were also included in the physical examination center of our hospital. The expression level of miR-152-5p was detected by RT-qPCR. The correlation between the expression level of miR-152-5p and patholog-ical Haas grading and urinary protein was analyzed.


The expression level of miR-152-5p in IgA nephropathy patients was higher than that in other types of glomerulonephritis and healthy control group (p < 0.0001). Meanwhile, the level of miR-152-5p in IgAN patients with high score (p < 0.01) was significantly increased. Furthermore, the level of miR-152-5p was positively corre-lated with the level of urinary protein and the degree of renal pathological damage (r2 = 0.89, p < 0.01).


The expression of urinary miR-152-5p is positively correlated with IgA nephropathy, which provides a new way for early diagnosis and treatment of IgA nephropathy with elevated proteinuria.
