Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1/CCL2) has a critical role in the development of various renal diseases. Data from disease specific experimental animal models and clinical studies confirm that MCP-1 plays an important part in the pathogenesis of renal diseases. The action of MCP-1 in these studies has been shown to be more complex than the traditional concept of monocyte/macrophage recruitment to the inflammatory site. MCP-1 is expressed in renal tissues and it is detectable in urine… CONTINUE READING
