Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one the main causes of kidney chronic disease that leads the patients to the end stage renal disease. One of the hallmark of DN is the damage to the glomerular filtration barrier (GFB) which triggers proteinuria. The damages to GFB are linked to loss and deregulation of podocytes, the main component involved on the selectivity and glomerular homeostasis. Pod...
Focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is one of the most important causes of chronic renal diseases thatarisedue to its high prevalence index. Is characterized by proteinuria and histopathological findings, like vascular collapse, mesangial sclerosis and progressive glomerular deterioration, however, the main characteristic of the disease is the podocyte foot processes effacemen...
Short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) are metabolites produced by intestinal microbes upon digestion of dietary fibre. SCFAs show a range of effects on the immune system, and are involved in several inflammatory processes. In particular, SCFAs have been associated with gut homeostasis, for instance by regulating Treg cell numbers, macrophage activation, epithelial integrity and enterocyte fun...
