The diagnosis of membranous glomerulopathy has evolved rapidly in the past 10 years since the identification of PLA2R as the major target antigen in primary membranous glomerulopathy. Today, rather than subtyping into vague categories such as ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’, we have tools available to name the specific type of disease present in most cases. Arkana Laboratories offers diagnostic testing for membranous glomerulopathy including immunohistochemical stains for tissue typing of PLA2R, THSD7A, EXT1/2, and NELL1 membranous and serum testing to monitor disease in patients with PLA2R and THSD7A-associated membranous glomerulopathy.
