To clarify the role of the Fas-Fas ligand (FasL) system in the peripheral blood from patients with various renal diseases, the Fas and FasL expression on mononuclear cells (MNCs) and serum levels of soluble Fas (sFas) and soluble FasL were investigated. Patients were selected from those with various types of glomerular diseases showing various degrees of renal function. Fas expression on MNCs was analyzed by a FACScan, sFas and soluble FasL were measured with an ELISA kit, and FasL expression… CONTINUE READING
