Resident macrophages and dendritic cells of the kidney maintain continual tolerance, and any disruption of this homeostasis will result in glomerular and/or tubulo-interstitial inflammation which often self-perpetuates leading to end stage renal disease.

Although immune dysfunction leads to renal disease, the reverse is true as : Catherine A. Picut. Immunopathology of Kidney Transplantation. Chapter(PDF Available) May with 80 Reads. How we measure 'reads'.

Recent studies in rodent models and humans have uncovered several underlying mechanisms that can be used to explain the previously enigmatic immunopathology of many kidney.

Kidneys are the body’s natural filter. During the day, the kidneys filter about 60 liters of blood and clean it of toxins. If the kidney fails to function a person can be poisoned by the very products that keep them alive.

In addition to cleansing, the kidneys complete other important processes of vital activity. Immunopathology is a branch of medicine that deals with immune responses associated with disease. It includes the study of the pathology of an organism, organ system, or disease with respect to the immune system, immunity, and immune biology, it refers to damage caused to an organism by its own immune response, as a result of an infection.

Interstitial nephritis, renal vasculitis, and kidney transplantation are all reviewed, although glomerular diseases get the lion's share. These are the enigmatic diseases that have engaged inquiring minds for decades and to which the origins of immunopathology research can be traced.

In Pocket Companion to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney (Eighth Edition), Idiopathic Acute Interstitial Nephritis Immunologic diseases such as Behçet disease, Sjögren syndrome, sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or the vasculitides may cause severe renal interstitial involvement.

The second edition of this book, like the previous edition, covers the general immunopathology of organ transplantation, plus organ‐specific pathology of the full range of solid organ transplants, hematopoietic stem cell transplants, composite tissue transplants, and dermatological complications and malignancies associated with transplants.

Wallace and A. England. The Immunopathology of the Kidney. A nephrological reference text which covers the ways antibodies induce glomerular injury, therapy for the more common forms of immunological renal injury, the membrane attack complex of complements and oxidants released by inflammatory cells and many other topics.

Young rats were infected with Trypanosoma cruzi and were killed after 6 and after 12 months. Examination of the kidneys by light microscopy, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy showed alterations in the mesangial area and basement membrane of the glomeruli and deposits of immunoglobulins, complement and fibrinogen in most of the rats.

$ - $ Other Sellers. The kidney undergoes autolysis rapidly, and kidneys from moribund animals or animals dying on test have histologic changes associated with autolysis. Even specimens immersion fixed at the time of sacrifice may contain subtle to large areas of autolysis within the kidney mimicking degeneration and necrosis (Figure 8).

Divided into two parts, the sixth edition discusses inflammation, the fundamentals of the immune system and how it is activated, the seven immune effector mechanisms, and how these effector mechanisms act not only to protect against infection and cancer but also to cause diseases.

Amongst many lifelong interests have been the history of medicine and the immunopathology of renal disease, as well as transplantation medicine and uric acid metabolism.

Research of our group focusses on the immunopathology of vascular and kidney disease. The vascular system has the ability to repair injury inflicted by hemodynamic, metabolic, inflammatory or genetic alterations.

However, in a large number of patients with kidney diseases, the natural capacity of the vasculature and the renal tissue to repair. Innate immunity is the predominant immune response in antigen-independent types of inflammation, such as toxic, ischemic, or traumatic kidney injury, which often present as acute kidney injury where the inflammatory component largely determines renal immunopathology and dysfunction.

immunopathology Richard Warrington1*, Wade Watson2, Harold L Kim3,4, Francesca Romana Antonetti5 Abstract In basic terms, the immune system has two lines of defense: innate immunity and adaptive immunity.

Innate immunity is the first immunological, non-specific (antigen-independent) mechanism for fighting against an intruding pathogen. A cross-sectional study on the relationship between hematological data and quantitative morphological indices from kidney biopsies in different glomerular diseases.

The classical approach to the analysis of kidney biopsies is based on semi-quantitative scores of the amount of sclerosis, inflammatory infiltrate, fibrosis and vascular damage. Disappearance of T Cell-Mediated Rejection Despite Continued Antibody-Mediated Rejection in Late Kidney Transplant Recipients.

Abstract. Medawar’s thoughts about the similarities between the fetus and a graft (M EDAWAR ) have preoccupied many investigators searching for an explanation for the success of “nature’s transplant.” In spite of their continous efforts over five decades to solve this question, the mechanisms that are responsible for the non-rejection of the fetus are still unclear.1.

Kidney damage for ≥ 3 months, as defined by structural or functional abnormalities of the kidney, with ou without decreased GFR, manifest by either: Markers of kidney damage, such as proteinuria, abnormal urinary sediment, or abnormalities in imaging tests 2.

GFR kidney damage. For the last few years, the number of immunocompromised individuals is growing fast, due to more intensive antitumor therapy, transplantations and the concomitant immunosuppressive therapy, and the HIV epidemic, as well.

Immunosuppressed patients very often are affected with nosocomial infections in hospitals, and with infections in the society. The defense from viral diseases .
