Inflammation and Diabetic Kidney Disease: Still a Burning Question

November 18, 2016 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W187

Session Description

Both local and systemic inflammatory signals contribute to kidney injury in diabetes. This session reviews the specific mechanisms by which inflammatory signals may cause renal cell injury, reviews the involvement of new receptors amenable to therapeutic interventions, sheds light on the relative contribution of selected cytokines, and reviews the role of key element of the inflammasome in the pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease (DKD).

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe how damage-associated molecular patterns and the inflammasome operates into cells; 2. discuss the role of IL17 in the pathogenesis of DKD; and 3. explain the role of cannabinoid receptors as mediators of cellular injury in diabetes.
