You have agreed to conduct a study as follows:the purpose of the study is to evaluate the long-term safety and probable benefit of the liposorber® la-15 system for the treatment of patients who have fsgs with a gfr ? 60 mi/min/1. 73 mm2 accompanied by nephrotic syndrome in which standard treatment options are unsuccessful or not well tolerated or for the treatment of post renal transplant patients with nephrotic syndrome associated with primary fsgs. You agree to modify the ongoing post-approval study that was required as condition of approval for the pediatric indication (approved under h120005), to include 35 newly enrolled adult subjects (in addition to the requirement of 35 subjects for the pediatric indication). This will be a prospective, multicenter, single arm study in 3 to 10 clinical centers in the united states. The study participants will be followed for 24 months after the completion of the final apheresis procedure. The study visits will be as follows: pre-procedural exams and laboratory tests, approximately 9 weeks of study apheresis procedures, and 1-, 3-, 6-, 12- and 24-month follow-up office visits. The primary objectives of this study are to confirm the safety and probable benefit of the liposorber® la-15 system in relieving nephrotic syndrome, defined as urine protein: creatinine ratio (up/c) > 2. 0 (gram protein per gram creatinine) with a first morning void urine sample, associated with refractory primary fsgs at 1 month after the final apheresis treatment.
