Diverse Cell Populations Involved in Regeneration of Renal Tubular Epithelium following Acute Kidney Injury

Renal tubular epithelium has the capacity to regenerate, repair, and reepithelialize in response to a variety of insults. Previous studies with several kidney injury models demonstrated that various growth factors, transcription factors, and extracellular matrices are involved in this process. Surviving tubular cells actively proliferate, migrate, and differentiate in the kidney...

Efficacy of tocilizumab, a humanized neutralizing antibody against interleukin-6 receptor, in progressive renal injury associated with Castleman's disease

Castleman's disease is a benign lymphoproliferative disorder in which interleukin-6 (IL-6), a pleiotropic proinflammatory cytokine, is thought to play a pathogenetic role. Presented is the case of a 72-year-old man with Castleman's disease who exhibited progressive renal dysfunction with proteinuria. Renal biopsy revealed mesangial hypercellularity and matrix expansion in most...
