Renal M2-like macrophages have critical roles in tissue repair, stimulating tubule cell proliferation and, if they remain, fibrosis. M2-like macrophages have also been implicated in promoting cyst expansion in mouse models of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). While renal macrophages have been documented in human ADPKD, there are no(More)
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is characterized by slow expansion of fluid-filled cysts derived from tubules within the kidney. Cystic expansion results in injury to surrounding parenchyma and leads to inflammation, scarring and ultimately loss of renal function. Macrophages are a key element in this process, promoting cyst epithelial cell proliferation,(More)
