Abstract

A robust inflammatory response involving tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) is induced during cisplatin nephrotoxicity. Using chimeric models, Reeves and colleagues now demonstrate that resident kidney cells, rather than infiltrating immune cells, are the major producers of TNF-α. Blockade of TNFα attenuates inflammation and associated kidney injury.
