MicroRNA regulated macrophage activation in obesity

facilitate the induction of genes under the regulation of PPARγ.[ 57 ] Similarly, liver X receptors (LXRs; nuclear transcription factors that heterodimerize with the retinoid X receptor RXRα) contribute to reduced pro-inflammatory signaling.[ 58 , 59 , 60 ] Indeed, LXRs have long been recognized for their role in the amelioration of autoimmune diseases and regression of atherosclerotic plaques, which are extensively orchestrated by M2 macrophages.[ 61 , 62 ] In recent years, increasing evidence supports the critical roles of miRNAs in regulating macrophage activation

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound: A promising method for renal microvascular perfusion evaluation

-aminohippurate (PAH) or a radioisotope tracer. Although PAH still remains a gold standard, the technical difficulties associated with its use have limited its routine application in the clinic, although it is commonly used for research. Nuclear medicine based techniques also pose problems such as requiring time for excretion of the injected radioisotopes out of the body, and concerns regarding radioisotope exposure. Against this backdrop, CEUS offers a novel approach for RBF evaluation, without the above-mentioned concerns, as it appears to be fast, noninvasive, and safe
