    Wednesday Aug 26 | CiteULike

    Recent studies have suggested that both the tubulointerstitial inflammatory cells and the activation of purinergic receptors integrate common mechanisms that result in salt-sensitive hypertension. The basis of this hypothesis is that renal endothelial cells release ATP in response to shear stress in the setting of hypertension.

    Jul 13, 2015 | CiteULike

    Is it possible to perform allogeneic uterus transplantation with a donation from a live donor in a non-human primate species and what immunosuppression is needed to prevent rejection? Allogeneic UTx in the baboon is a donor- and recipient-safe surgical procedure; immunosuppression with induction therapy and a triple protocol should be used. UTx may become a treatment for absolute uterine factor infertility.
