BACKGROUND Hypertension is a major risk factor for renal disease progression. However, the mechanisms by which hypertension aggravates the effects of diabetes on the kidney are incompletely understood. We tested the hypothesis that renovascular hypertension accelerates angiotensin-II-dependent kidney damage and inflammation in the db/db mouse, a model of type II diabetes. METHODS Renovascular hypertension was established in db/db and wild-type control mice through unilateral renal artery… CONTINUE READING
