Several studies in animal models of sepsis have demonstrated the role of TNF in the development of acute kidney injury: mice lacking a TNF receptor are resistant to endotoxin-induced acute kidney injury and TNF-receptor negative kidneys are resistant to endotoxin-induced damage when transplanted into TNF-positive mice [32]. In human sepsis, elevated serum levels of two soluble TNF-receptors are strongly associated with the development of acute kidney injury [35].
