A specific subset of immune cells that mitigates kidney damage

The immune system is highly complex. For example, a particular class of cells called mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs) plays important roles in the uptake and disposal of damaged cells, the elimination of invasive pathogens and other foreign bodies, and the regulation of immune responses. This set includes cells known as macrophages, dendritic cells and monocytes, which together form a complex network that carries out a range of functions in the kidney.
