Abstract

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) plays a major role in the pathogenesis and progression of different types of human renal disease. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of MCP-1 gene -2518 A > G promoter polymorphism in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients requiring long-term hemodialysis.
