Objective A number of chemokines and chemokine receptors are produced by intrinsic renal cells as well as by infiltrating cells during renal inflammation. The CCR2 chemokine receptor mediates leukocyte chemoattraction in the initiation and amplification phase of renal inflammation. The polymorphism, CCR2-V64I, changes valine 64 of CCR2 to isoleucine. We aimed to determine the frequency of CCR2-V64I polymorphism in patients with chronic renal failure requiring long-term hemodialysis.
