Malaria infections often cause glomerulonephritis (GN), and multiple factors have been implicated in the pathogenesis of glomerular injury. The role of cytokines in malaria associated glomerulonephritis has not been clearly defined. To study the importance of cytokines in malarial nephritis, we investigated the expression of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha), IL-6, IL-10 and granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) in kidneys acutely… CONTINUE READING
