Effects of a new endothelin antagonist, TAK-044, on post-ischemic acute renal failure in rats.


Protective effects of a new endothelin (ET) receptor antagonist, TAK-044, were studied in a model of acute renal failure (ARF) in rats. ARF was induced by clamping the left renal pedicle for 45 minutes with contralateral nephrectomy and subsequent reperfusion of the left kidney. Plasma creatinine concentration (Pcr) increased to 2.28 mg/dl 24 hours after… (More)
