Abstract

This review describes recent advances in macrophage biology in the context of renal inflammation. It highlights the importance of the activated macrophage for the progression and resolution of renal disease, and discusses recent and potential future approaches to modify macrophage function selectively within the kidney to activate them specifically to promote the healing of kidney disease.
