    Angiotensin II regulates the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines in the kidney. Background. Emerging evidence suggests that angiotensin II (Ang II) is not only a vasoactive peptide, but also a true cytokine that regulates cell growth, inflammation and fibrosis. Many studies...

    Tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation are common causes of progressive organ damage, including progressive renal disease, leading to loss of physiological functions. Recently, it was shown that Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) is expressed in the kidney and activated by endogenous danger signals....

    Gram-negative sepsis is a frequent complication in patients with acute renal failure. This study tested whether acute tubular injury, for example, induced by cisplatin (CP) or urinary tract obstruction, enhances renal cytokine responses to endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide (LPS)), potentially...

    Objective. Based on the function of fractalkine (CX3CL1), the unique member of the CX3C chemokine subfamily, in endothelial-related inflammation, we hypothesized a role for CX3CL1 and its receptor (CX3CR) in Wegener's granulomatosis (WG). In the present study, this hypothesis was tested by...

    The article presents information on chemokines and renal disease. Recent experimental and clinical observations in various forms of kidney diseases have highlighted the importance of interactions of specific leukocyte populations such as neutrophils, monocytes/macrophages and T cells with local...

    Hantaviruses cause two important human illnesses, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). Both syndromes are believed to be immune-mediated diseases. Monocytes/macrophages are thought to be the main target cells for hantaviruses and important sources...

Macrophages play an important role not in glomerular but also in tubular and interstitial renal diseases. The infiltrating and resident macrophages release mediators of inflammation and cytokines in...
