In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Cell Division Autoantigen 1 (CDA1) has been validated as a potential target to treat diabetic patients with kidney disease. My project was to further examine the role of CDA1 in a scenario similar to the clinical setting were I experimentally targeted CDA1 after the disease has been established. Indeed, my study confirms that targeting CDA1 at early stages of diabetic kidney disease was effective in reducing kidney scarring in experimental diabetic mice.
