1. Chronic renal disease is associated with oxidative stress, reduced nitric oxide (NO) availability and soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) dysfunction. Recently, we discovered BAY 58-2667, a compound activating heme-deficient or oxidized sGC in a NO-independent manner. 2. We assessed potential of BAY 58-2667 in preventing cardiac and renal target organ damage… CONTINUE READING
