  • BACKGROUND The Steno hypothesis postulates that a genetic defect in the regulation of the production of heparan sulphate by renal and non-renal cells determines susceptibility for the development of proteinuria and macro-angiopathy in patients with diabetic nephropathy (DN). METHODS To test this hypothesis, skin fibroblasts isolated from type II diabetic patients with overt DN, micro-albuminuria, or without DN and from non-diabetic patients (n=8 for each group) were cultured in the presence… CONTINUE READING
