Heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) has been involved in different kidney diseases playing protective as well as counter-protective roles. Stressful conditions that include oxidative stress as diabetes and chronic kidney disease promote cells to over express HSP27. In the present study, investigation of serum Hsp27 levels in type 2 diabetic Egyptians with(More)
