Abstract: New data suggest that a soluble form of the IgA receptor CD89 may be protective against development of progressive renal injury in IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Understanding how IgA triggers shedding of CD89 from myeloid cell surfaces could help clarify the process of immune complex formation in IgAN, and measurement of this soluble form of CD89 may in the future prove a useful prognostic indicator of end-stage renal disease in this common glomerulonephritis.
