    Heat shock proteins and kidney disease: perspectives of HSP therapy.
    Cell Stress Chaperones 2017 May 13;22(3):319-343. Epub 2017 Apr 13.
    I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, 2-4 Bolshaya Pirogovskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 119992.
    Heat shock proteins (HSPs) mediate a diverse range of cellular functions, prominently including folding and regulatory processes of cellular repair. A major property of these remarkable proteins, dependent on intracellular or extracellular location, is their capacity for immunoregulation that optimizes immune activity while avoiding hyperactivated inflammation. In this review, recent investigations are described, which examine roles of HSPs in protection of kidney tissue from various traumatic influences and demonstrate their potential for clinical management of nephritic disease.

    Evaluation of the living kidney donor: current perspectives.
    Am J Kidney Dis 2004 Mar;43(3):508-30
    University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA, USA.
    Living kidney donation is increasing because of prolonged waiting times on the transplant list, as well as improved outcomes for recipients. In 2001, the number of living donors surpassed the number of deceased donors; this trend likely will continue with ever-increasing margins. Because of this increase, as well as changes in our society's health, it is time to re-review the guidelines for selecting living kidney donors established by Kasiske et al in 1995. Read More
    Rare inherited kidney diseases: challenges, opportunities, and perspectives.
    Lancet 2014 May;383(9931):1844-59
    Pediatric Nephrology Division, Center for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.
    At least 10% of adults and nearly all children who receive renal-replacement therapy have an inherited kidney disease. These patients rarely die when their disease progresses and can remain alive for many years because of advances in organ-replacement therapy. However, these disorders substantially decrease their quality of life and have a large effect on health-care systems. Read More
