Australian researchers uncover a gene that controls inflammation in kidney disease, which could pave the way for more precise disease diagnostics and personalised treatments.
The new labelling system includes a variant of ascorbate peroxidase which is fused to another protein that is known to seek out exosomes.
Scientists have found that molecules produced by cells in response to stress may be indicators of various diseases.
The self-assembling, nanomatrix gel may represent the first effective therapy to promote healthy arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation in kidney disease patients.
The study shows how drug-like small molecules inhibit the activity of Transient Receptor Potential Canonical 1/4/5 (TRPC1/4/5) channels and could transform the development of future therapies.
Research into alternative stem cell sources has identified urine derived renal progenitor cells (UdRPCs) as a possible option for use in regenerative kidney therapies in the future.
Kidneys are crucial for filtration of drugs and toxins and their proper function is essential for overall health. Unfortunately, due to disease and improper function, kidney transplantation or dialysis are necessary for millions of patients annually all over the world.1,2
A team of researchers set out to discover the disease pathways of a rare genetic kidney disease and found a compound that stops the disease in its tracks.
Results from a new study suggest that DNA sequencing could soon become part of the routine diagnostic examination for patients with chronic kidney disease.
