Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Based Therapies against Podocyte Damage in Diabetic Nephropathy

Abstract

Injury to podocytes is an early event in diabetic nephropathy leading to proteinuria with possible progression to end-stage renal failure. The podocytes are unique and highly specialized cells that cover the outer layer of kidney ultra-filtration barrier and play an important role in glomerular function. In the past few decades, adult stem cells, such as… (More)
