Immune Mechanisms in Injury to Glomeruli and Tubulointerstitial Tissue

Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)


At the beginning of this century, the idea took shape that human glomerular diseases are caused by immunologic mechanisms. Since that time, many attempts have been made to induce glomerular diseases and elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms involved. The study of these experimental models has given an insight into the pathophysiology and underlying immunological mechanisms of renal disease and glomerular disease in particular (Furness and Harris 1994).
