Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). CKD is characterized by a progressive loss of renal function, chronic inflammation
To compare the relationship between the anti –DNA Abs in diabetic patients type 1 and type 2 and their relation with chronic renal failure.
The ELISA methods was used to detect the presence of anti-DNA –Abs in sera of diabetic patients with type 1 and type 2 D.M. with CRF.
The concentration of anti-DNA Abs. were more in type II D.M. patients with CRF than those with type I D.M. without CRF and control group.
The anti-DNA Abs. play an important role in the CRF in patients with long duration of D.M. type II ,while in patients with short duration of D.M. type I , anti-DNA Abs. do not play a role.
