Background. Monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 is suggested to be implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy by activating and recruiting monocytes to the glomerulus via regulation of adhesion molecule expressions. The aim of this study was to test potential associations between serum concentrations of MCP-1, monocyte expression of Mac-1 and LFA-1 and nephropathy in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
