Beck, Jr., M.D., Ph.D. presented results from a study which found that Acthar may induce a remission of proteinuria in patients with nephrotic syndrome due to idiopathic membranous nephropathy by suppressing production of antibodies to the phospholipase A2 receptor.  Separately, results from a prospective clinical study at Columbia University conducted by Appel et al.,
