OBJECTIVE To investigate whether aldosterone (Aldo) may be synthesized by glomerular mesangial cells and whether Aldo promotes the synthesis of fibronectin (FN) and type IV collagen in mesangial cells. METHODS Rat mesangial cells (RMC) were cultured and then divided into 4 groups: control group, AngII group (AngII of the concentrations of 10(-10), 10(-9),(More)
The role of metabolic acidosis in the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the direct effects of acid loading on the proliferation of rat glomerular mesangial cells (GMCs) in vitro and the possible role of sodium–hydrogen ion exchanger isoform 1 (NHE1). Rat GMCs were treated with acidic(More)
Low-protein diet plus ketoacids (LPD+KA) has been reported to decrease proteinuria in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD). However, the mechanisms have not been clarified. As over-activation of intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been shown to play a key role in the progression of CKD, the current study was performed to investigate the(More)
A convenient and valid method for the determination of ascorbic acid(AA) and dehydroascorbic acid(DHAA) in plasma and dialysate from patients with uremia by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection is described. A mixture of 0.8 g/L metaphosphoric acid and 18% (volume fraction) perchloric acid was used as a protein precipitant(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of oral pioglitazone (PIO) on lipid metabolism, insulin resistance, inflammation, and adipokine metabolism in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. METHODS In this randomized crossover trial, 36 CAPD patients with serum triglyceride levels above 1.8 mmol/L were(More)
Previous studies have shown that acute unilateral nephrectomy stimulates sodium (UNaV) and potassium (UKV) excretion by the remaining kidney through reflex pathways requiring an intact pituitary gland, and the natriuresis is accompanied by an increase in the plasma concentration of a peptide or peptides derived from the adrenocorticotropic(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protection of rosiglitazone (RSG) against renal interstitial lesion and its mechanism. METHODS Male adult SD rats were randomly divided into 5 groups: Sham group, undergoing sham operation; Sham + RSG group, undergoing sham operation and treated with RSG (30 mg.kg(-1).d(-1)); UUO group, undergoing unilateral left ureter(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the risk factor stratification and prevalence of target organ damage in hypertensive patients before therapy and blood pressure control rate after 4 or 12 weeks antihypertensive drug therapy. METHODS In this prospective survey, data on cardiovascular risk factors, target organ damage and concomitant disease were collected in 26 655(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively evaluate the current situation of blood pressure control in the type 2 diabetics in some regions of China. METHODS Totally 5063 consecutive patients with hypertension were investigated. Among them 1993 with diabetes underwent baseline survey. Individualized target blood pressures were set by physicians. Four follow-up visits, in(More)
Pulsed low-dose cyclophosphamide (CTX) therapy has become a very effective approach in improving the clinical outcomes of lupus nephritis (LN) patients. However, variations of CTX therapeutic outcomes in LN patients are incompletely understood. We investigated the contributions of known allelic variants to CTX therapy outcomes in 77 LN patients. Then, 22(More)
