New insights into the pathogenesis of cellular crescents

Abstract [en]

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review discusses the recent evidence that intrinsic glomerular cells including podocytes, parietal epithelial cells and progenitor cells within Bowman's capsule contribute to cellular crescents.

RECENT FINDINGS: Using a variety of newer molecular markers and lineage tracing experiments, investigators have clearly demonstrated that glomerular cells play a key role in the development and progression of cellular crescents in experimental and human disease.

SUMMARY: Crescentic glomerulonephritis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Current therapies target the immune system. The recent finding that nonimmune cells also play a role in crescent formation highlights the need to identify alternate and complimentary therapeutic strategies.
