Alexander ROSENKRANZ, Chairman of the Division of Nephrology at the MUG, is a trained immunologist with a long-standing interest in the immune mechanisms in kidney diseases. His group described recently that regulatory T cells (Treg) play a role in limiting nephrotoxic serum nephritis, a model that is pathogenetically close to human Goodpasture’s disease, and that Tregs have the capacity to improve insulin resistance and diabetic nephropathy by inhibiting effector CD8+ T cells.
