Risk stratification for progression of IgA nephropathy using a decision tree induction algorithm

By Masashi Goto, Takashi Kawamura, Kenji Wakai, Masahiko Ando, Masayuki Endoh and Yasuhiko Tomino


Background. Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common form of glomerulonephritis, and many patients are at risk of at least slow progression. However, prediction of the renal outcome in individual patients remains difficult
