Imbalance towards Th1 pathway predominance in purpura nephritis with proteinuria

Abstract

Although recent reports suggest a possible role for an imbalance in Th1 and Th2 proinflammatory cytokines in the development and progression of glomerulonephritis, there is little information on Th1 or Th2 predominance in Henoch–Schönlein purpura nephritis (HSPN). Since T-bet and GATA-3 are transcriptional factors that regulate the differentiation of helper… (More)
