Effects of a low-protein diet on urinary glycosaminoglycan excretion in adriamycin-treated rats.

Abstract

Adriamycin (ADR) induces glomerular damage in rats with persistent severe proteinuria which reaches a peak 15 days after a single 5 mg/kg intravenous (i.v.) injection. We studied in ADR-treated rats the effects of a low-protein (6%) diet (LPD) supplemented with keto acids on urinary protein and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) excretion and glomerular GAG contents… (More)
