ISN Forefronts Symposium 2012 "Tubulointerstitial Disease in Diabetic Nephropathy" focuses on emerging and ground-breaking research. It will gather nephrologists and active investigators from surrounding medical areas to explore new scientific domains and review the latest developments in kidney disease. Using an interactive format, ISN Forefronts Symposium 2012 will allow nephrologists to develop a collegial relationship with leading researchers from other disciplines.
Diabetic nephropathy is the most common cause of end stage renal disease across almost all countries. In this chronic renal disease, dysfunction and expansion of the cortico-tubulointerstitium of the kidney is the best predictor of progression to end stage renal disease. A greater understanding of the pathogenesis of these diverse changes is required to assess relevant targets to prevent or reverse diabetic renal disease.
Sessions focus on:
• Micro RNA and extracellular matrix accumulation• T regulatory cells in the tubulointerstitial compartment• ATP production and energy bioenergetics in the proximal tubule• Renal glucose uptake and gluconeogenesis• Epithelial/Endothelial Myofibroblast Transdifferentiation• Post translational modification• Cell trafficking in the proximal tubule• Taking things outside the body• Redox imbalance and post-translational modifications• Renal inflammation• Lessons learnt from podocytes
