I don't know that there is any single therapy that is always tried for recurrences of membranous (or possibly membranoproliferative) glomerulonephritis; the doc might try again with whatever therapeutic option was used before.

There are some newer findings about specific autoantibodies that are connected to MGN, but I'm not up to date on all of that. Maybe ask your nephrologist about it.
