[Histonet] Commonly used stains for kidney disease progession??

From:- -

Hi everyone,
Quick question:
What are the commonly used stains/immunochemistry procedures to evaluate progression of disease within kidneys?  (I may need to know WHY also in case I am not familiar with a certain technique, stain, or antibody)
So far I have been told a number ranging from PAS, trichrome and a silver technique - but I started to become confused.  They all seem great but I think I may need the WHY along with the WHAT when answers are being sent back in reply.
As usual, thank you for your assistance.
