Peter's Editorial Comments
"This study provides direct evidence that the PPAR-Y agonist, rosiglitazone, can protect against the loss of podocyte foor processes and down-regulation of podocyte slit diaphragm proteins in experimental focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis. Interestlingly, rosiglitazone reduced the degree of glomerulosclerosis and proteinuria, but did not prevent the loss of WT-1+ podocytes".
