    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is usually associated with interstitial leukocytic cell infiltrates, which may contribute to disease progression by production of proinflammatory, proapoptotic, and profibrotic mediators. Recruiting leukocytes into the kidney involves local expression of chemotactic...
