In the kidney, glomeruli are the tiny units where blood is filtered to ensure stable circulating levels of electrolytes and acids. In some kidney diseases, the glomeruli can inadvertently produce scar-like tissue, preventing proper function. Scarring of glomeruli is irreversible, and late-breaking research is focused on stopping this scarring process before it becomes too burdensome for the patient.
