Plasma and urinary soluble adhesion molecule expression is increased during first documented acute pyelonephritis.

BACKGROUND The degree of inflammatory reaction and leucocyte trafficking during acute pyelonephritis has been related to the risk of developing renal parenchymal scarring. Adhesion molecules play a central role in leucocyte recruitment during inflammation. AIMS (1) To determine whether circulating and urinary concentrations of E-selectin and intercellular… CONTINUE READING
