Abstract

Lymphocyte depletion by FTY720 limits the progression of anti-thy 1-induced glomerulosclerosis toward chronic tubulointerstitial fibrosis and renal insufficiency. The data suggest that lymphocytes actively participate in the progression of chronic experimental kidney disease, and that FTY720 may be a novel approach to slow the progressive course of human chronic renal diseases.
