The possible beneficial effect of regular aquatic exercise on cardiorespiratory, renal lipid parameters and oxidative stress status was studied in patients with mild to moderate renal failure. The exercise group did low-intensity aerobic exercise in the pool during a period of 12 weeks, twice a week, with sessions lasting for 30 min. Matched control(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the changes in the early stages (at weeks 2 and 4) of experimental acute renal failure after short-time ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) compared with the impact of Losartan. Twenty male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: sham-operated rats (2 weeks), I/R groups (2 and 4 weeks); I/R and Losartan-treated groups (2(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Rats with subtotal nephrectomy (5/6NPX) rapidly develop systemic hypertension and proteinuria. The aim of our study was to evaluate the changes in oxidative stress parameters after 2 and 4 weeks of treatment with renin-angiotensin system (RAS)-blocking agent losartan and beta-blocking agent atenolol in experimental chronic renal failure(More)
Previous studies have indicated that the application of low dose radiation to an arterial ligation has the potential to subsequently reduce or eliminate restenosis caused by smooth muscle cell proliferation. Sufficient kidney irradiation causes a radiation nephropathy and often leads to renal failure. In order to evaluate the effect of low-dose irradiation(More)
The objectives of this study were to find out how motivated depressed patients are to exercise regularly, to measure the physical activity of depressed patients and to find out how regular Nordic Walking affects the mood and physical fitness of depressed patients. A cross-sectional study was carried out. Three years after the Prediction of Primary Episodes(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of losartan on the changes in the early stages (at week 4) of experimental chronic renal failure after 5/6 nephrectomy compared with the impact of atenolol. Attention was focused on the ultrastructural changes in the renal corpuscles. Twenty-seven male Wistar rats were divided into three groups:(More)
Virtually all renal diseases progress to terminal renal failure relatively independently of the initial disease. Arresting the rate of the deterioration of kidney failure has a great impact on reducing the number of patients reaching the stage of expensive renal replacement therapy. Understanding the mechanisms of the progression of kidney disease has(More)
