The recruitment of inflammatory cells into renal tissue, mainly T cells and monocytes, is a typical feature of various renal diseases such as glomerulonephritis, thrombotic angiopathies, allograft rejection, and vasculitis. T cells predominantly infiltrate the tubulointerstitium, whereas monocytes are present in the tubulointerstitial and glomerular(More)
BJ: The cost-effectiveness of maintaining higher hemoglobin targets with erythropoietin in hemodialysis patients. M: Venous thromboembolism and mortality associated with recombinant erythropoietin and darbepoetin administration for the treatment of cancer-associated anemia. Our choice of partners, so they say, is subconsciously directed by an immune system(More)
Multiple studies have identified CD4+ T cells as central players of glomerulonephritis (GN). Cells of the Th1 and Th17 responses cause renal tissue damage, while Tregs mediate protection. Recently, a high degree of plasticity among these T cell lineages was proposed. During inflammation, Th17 cells were shown to have the potential of transdifferentiation(More)
