Abstract

Introduction: Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) has a crucial role in collagen synthesis and fibrosis. TGF-beta 1 can be antagonized and/or reduced by the action of certain agents. We propose to identify the role of decorin in treatment of tubular and interstitial fibrosis and in the inhibition of TGF-beta 1 in an acute ischaemic kidney.
