To review the Oxford Classification of IgA nephropathy in the light of recent data, discussing whether there should be published modifications of the Oxford Classification 2009.
The conference is being held in June 2014 five years after the publication of the Oxford Classification in Kidney International. The conference will be held at Magdalen College, Oxford, where the original meetings developing the Oxford Classification were held in 2005 & 2008.
Local organisers: Ian Roberts, Terry Cook, Jonathan Barratt, John Feehally
Rresearchers are invited to present biopsy data from retrospective clinicopathological studies and clinical trials performed since the publication of the Oxford Classification.
We are expecting delegates will include
- Nephrologists and pathologists involved in the original development o the Oxford Classification
- Investigators who have subsequently published or presented ‘validation studies’ of the Oxford Classification
- Investigators who have data using novel biopsy markers in IgA nephropathy which together with conventional pathological features may improve the prognostic value of the biopsy in IgA nephropathy.
The programme will include invited speakers, free communications (both oral and poster) and substantial time for plenary discussion.
