Objectives of the study were to investigate impact of ischemic preconditioning (Ipre) and sulforaphane (SFN) and combination of them on nuclear factor 2 erythroid related factor 2 (Nrf2) gene and its dependent genes, heme oxygenase-1 (HO1) and NADPH-quinone oxidoreductase1 (NQO-1) and inflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha, IL1beta, and intercellular adhesion(More)
Inflammation culminating in fibrosis contributes to progressive kidney disease. Cross-talk between the tubular epithelium and interstitial cells regulates inflammation by a coordinated release of cytokines and chemokines. Here we studied the role of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and the heavy subunit of ferritin (FtH) in macrophage polarization and renal(More)
PURPOSE To analyse the long-term outcome in relation to multiple graft arteries (MGA) in live-donor renal transplantation, and assess its effect on graft and patient survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between March 1976 and November 2009, a total of 2100 live-donor renal transplants were carried out at our centre. Patients were stratified according to the(More)

BACKGROUND Increasing the living-donor pool by accepting donors with an isolated medical abnormality (IMA) can significantly decrease the huge gap between limited supply and rising demand for organs. There is a wide range of variation among different centres in dealing with these categories of donors. We reviewed studies discussing living kidney donors with(More)
