Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome is a type of kidney disease. This condition may require many hospital visits, new medications, and relapses. Obinutuzumab is a study drug to help improve the lives of children and young people with this issue and their families. Research is needed to learn how safe and effective Obinutuzumab is when compared to a currently used common drug. The information we gain may aid future patients.
