Renal injury resulting from renal ablation induced by 5/6 nephrectomy (5/6NX) is associated with oxidant stress, glomerular hypertension, hyperfiltration, and impaired Nrf2-Keap1 pathway. The purpose of this work was to know if the bifunctional antioxidant curcumin may induce nuclear translocation of Nrf2 and prevents 5/6NX-induced oxidant stress, renal(More)
Cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum II, CDDP) is a chemotherapeutic agent that induces nephrotoxicity associated with oxidative/nitrosative stress. Sulforaphane (SFN) is an isothiocyanate produced by the enzymatic action of myrosinase on glucorophanin, a glucosinolate contained in cruciferous vegetables. SFN is able to induce cytoprotective enzymes(More)
BACKGROUND Sildenafil treatment ameliorates progressive renal injury resulting from extensive renal ablation; however, modifications induced by sildenafil in the glomerular hemodynamic pathophysiology of the remnant kidney have not been investigated. AIM To determine the effects of sildenafil in the glomerular microcirculation and their relation to(More)
