Defining this tipping point has been a major challenge for a variety of technical reasons. But in a study just published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers have discovered a molecular switch involved in controlling the transition from normal tissue repair to incomplete, or permanent, damage . The NIH-supported researchers also suggest a possible drug candidate to control this switch and slow the progression of CKD.
