BACKGROUND The nephrotoxicity induced by contrast media remains a serious clinical problem, and the underlying mechanism has not been completely understood. Experimental and clinical investigations suggest that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are critical determinants of radiocontrast nephropathy (RCN), and that antioxidants can prevent this damage. METHODS Cultured human proximal renal tubule cells (HK-2) were exposed to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) at different concentrations. H2O2-induced… CONTINUE READING
