INTRODUCTION IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common primary glomerulopathy. OBJECTIVE Classify IgAN according to the new Oxford's classification. METHODS We analyzed the renal biopsies from the Nephropathology Service of UFTM, among 1996 to 2010, with a diagnosis of IgAN. We assessed gender, age, presence of hematuria, patterns/intensity of the(More)
Experiments were performed to determine the influence of exercise training by swimming on cardiovascular autonomic control and renal morphology in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wystar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. Sedentary normotensive (SN), trained normotensive (TN), sedentary hypertensive (SH), and trained hypertensive (TH) rats were included in this(More)
Assess the effects of exercise-training on resting arterial pressure and heart rate, placental fetuses morphologic alterations in pregnant spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs).Twenty SHRs and their respective control normotensive rats (WKY) were submitted or not to a swimming protocol during 9 weeks, resulting in four pregnant experimental groups:(More)
Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, in which the elastic properties of arteries are subjected to high pressure levels, and networks of elastic fibers may develop cleft longitudinal, transverse, breaks and fragmentation, and such structural changes (fibrosis and degradation of elastin) may lead to a decrease in the elasticity of(More)
AIM This study aimed to determine the morphological renal impairment in pregnant rats spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) submitted to swimming when compared with those who did not perform the activity, and to analyze the relationship of expression of cytokines in inflammatory fibrotic and protrained and sedentary animals. METHODS SHRs and their respective(More)
