Chronic allograft nephropathy is characterized by chronic inflammation and fibrosis. Because retinoids exhibit anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic functions, the effects of low and high doses of 13-cis-retinoic acid (13cRA) were studied in a chronic Fisher344-->Lewis transplantation model. In 13cRA animals, independent of dose (2 or 20 mg/kg body weight/day) and start (0 or 14 days after transplantation) of 13cRA administration, serum creatinine was significantly lower and… CONTINUE READING
