The article provides information related to nephrology. Heymann nephritis is a membranous glomerulonephritis induced by rat immunization to brushborder antigens. The interleukin-1 is studied for its role in allergic response during hemodialysis. The electrical properties in contact with blood is studied for its role in the activation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils.

    Background. Proliferation of intrinsic glomerular cells is a common response to renal injury. Acutely, proliferation may be beneficial, but sustained glomerular hypercellularity after injury is associated with progressive renal failure. To identify endogenous factors that may be responsible for...

    Urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (Ngal or lipocalin 2) is a very early and sensitive biomarker of kidney injury. Here we determined the origin and time course of Ngal appearance in several experimental and clinically relevant renal diseases. Urinary Ngal levels were found to be...

    We have previously, reported that both neutrophils (PMNs) and platelets mediate proteinuria m a model of subendothelial immune complex (IC) nephritis (GN) in the rat. In order to understand the interaction of PMNs and platelets in this model, we quantitated the uptake of 111In-labelled platelet...

    Neutrophils (PMNs) mediate injury in experimental glomerulonephritis (GN) in part via the release of reactive oxygen species, particularly hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Recent kidney perfusion studies demonstrate that H2O2 can cause glomerular injury by reaction with halides in the presence of the...
