Delayed graft function and primary non-function are serious complications following transplantation of kidneys derived from deceased brain dead (DBD) donors. α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) is a pleiotropic neuropeptide and its renoprotective effects have been demonstrated in models of acute kidney injury. We hypothesized that α-MSH treatment of(More)
The protective, nonerythropoietic effects of erythropoietin (EPO) have become evident in preclinical models in renal ischaemia/reperfusion injury and kidney transplantation. However, four recently published clinical trials using high-dose EPO treatment following renal transplantation did not reveal any protective effect for short-term renal function and(More)
In contrast with various pre-clinical studies, recent clinical trials suggest that high dose erythropoietin (EPO) treatment following kidney transplantation does not improve short-term outcome and that it even increases the risk of thrombotic events. ARA290 is a non-erythropoietic EPO derivative and does not increase the risk of cardiovascular events, but(More)
ARA290 is a non-erythropoietic EPO derivative which only binds to the cytoprotective receptor complex (EPOR2-βcR2) consisting of two EPO-receptors (EPOR) and two β common receptors (βcR). ARA290 is renoprotective in renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). In a renal I/R model we focussed on timing of post-reperfusional administration of ARA290. Furthermore, we(More)
