GloMY Design:

GloMY is a national, multi-centre, randomised controlled open-label pilot trial of Myfortic plus short course steroids versus standard care in patients with proteinuric primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Currently standard care is a long course of steroids for patients with FSGS, and no treatment for patients with IgAN.

GloMY Aim:

To determine the feasibility of running a full-scale phase III randomised trial of Myfortic plus short course steroids versus standard care in patients with FSGS or IgAN, and to obtain preliminary comparative data on the efficacy of Myfortic plus short course steroids in inducing sustained response in patients with FSGS or IgAN.

GloMY Sample Size:

As this is a pilot study, no formal sample size calculations have been performed. Recruitment of 100 patients with FSGS and IgAN over 24 months was planned (50 to Myfortic with short course steroids and 50 to standard care), with a minimum number of 40 patients with each disease type. GloMY closed to recruitment on 21st Aug 2012 with 12 patients randomised and 26 centres fully approved.

GloMY Study Duration:

48 months
