Abstract

BACKGROUND Chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN), a major problem in renal transplantation, is related to both alloantigen-dependent and -independent processes. Because dietary salt intake modulated glomerular production of transforming growth factor-beta, which has been shown to play an important role in CAN, we hypothesized that dietary salt would directly… (More)
