Renal (Kidney) Fibrosis
Renal (kidney) fibrosis is the principal process underlying the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) that can lead to organ failure and eventual death. Using Masson’s trichrome or Picrosirius red IHC staining techniques together with image analysis approaches, it is possible to quantify the collagen content within fibrotic kidney tissue. Quantifying collagen levels together with cellular content in models of kidney fibrosis, such as the unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) model, can be used to determine the effect of drug treatment on kidney fibrosis.

Histological stains such as Picrosirius Red or Masson’s TriChrome can be used to reveal inflammatory and fibrotic changes within kidney tissue sections. A custom algorithm is developed to accurately identify and segment cortex areas within the whole tissue section. Levels of collagen deposition within the kidney cortex region of interest (ROI) can be accurately quantified and classified.
