Abstract

Zager and colleagues demonstrate that endotoxin tolerance is accompanied by an augmented inflammatory response in the kidney, the latter also exhibiting cholesterol-dependent cytoresistance. These novel findings are discussed mainly from the perspective of acute kidney injury and its prevention by preconditioning and the elicitation of cytoprotective pathways.
