Abstract

Glomerular diseases show diverse epidemiological characteristics throughout the world, which has been suggested to be caused by differences in genetics of the underlying populations or environmental exposure to the putative antigens or agents that either trigger or induce the disease.

Follicular T Helper Cells

Follicular t helper cells are an important subset of helper t-cells which help to the formation of germinal centers and b-cells differentiation. Discover the latest research on follicular t helper cells here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis is type of Chronic glomerulonephritis characterized histologically by proliferation of mesangial cells, increase in the mesangial extracellular matrix, and a thickening of the glomerular capillary walls. Discover the latest research on membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. Discover the latest research on atopic dermatitis here.
