Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) and Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) are the main causes of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), a condition characterized by progressive loss of renal function and the presence of proteins in the urine. The loss of proteins is closely associated with the dysfunction of podocytes, highly specialized cells that make up the glomerular filtration barrier...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the major cause of chronic kidney disease in the world and glomerular dysfunction is the most common etiologic factor for kidney function loss. Hyperglycemia participates in the development of diabetic nephropathy (DN), among other pathways, through the increased production of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). However only a few studies have evaluated the...
Introduction: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the most common cause of endstage renal disease worldwide and new therapies are urgently needed. The studies focusing in new mechanistic insights into the (patho)physiology of renal injury in diabetes, as well as potentially leading to the development of novel therapeutic interventions in DN, through targeting non-coding RNA-regulated epigeneti...
