Molecular understanding and the control of chronic renal disease progression still represent a major challenge for scientists and clinicians. A number of recent experimental strategies suggest that improvement of renal function and architectural integrity is potentially feasible. Chronic renal diseases are characterized by interstitial fibrosis, which is a morphological and functional predictor tightly linked to the survival of the organ. Transforming growth factor-b1 (TGF-b1) has been… CONTINUE READING
