Cardiovascular disease is now the most common cause of death in renal transplantation. Cyclosporine (CsA)-associated hypertension might be a major cause of cardiovascular risk factors. There is evidence suggesting that one mechanism of CsA toxicity might be mediated through alteration of membrane lipid peroxidation, which can activate cellular pathways.(More)
Hypertension, a common complication after renal transplantation, has many potential etiologies. Erythrocyte sodium lithium countertransport (Na/LiCT) is a sensitive membrane protein that has been observed to be abnormal in several hypertension-related diseases. We have shown that the kinetics of Na/LiCT were abnormal in renal transplant recipients treated(More)
