Macrophages can have profound effects on the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) by shaping the innate immune response. For example, pro-inflammatory M1 macrophages secrete tumor necrosis factor- (TNF) and Interleukin-1 (IL-1), both of which can promulgate kidney injury and fibrosis. Through activation of type 1 angiotensin (AT1) receptors in the kidney, the renin angiotensin system (RAS) similarly plays a key role in progressive kidney damage culminating in renal fibrosis. However, in...
