The role of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the pathogenesis of cisplatin nephrotoxicity was evaluated in an experimental rat model using a specific, nonpeptide angiotensin II(AII) receptor blocker, losartan. Rats were treated with a single dose of losartan (at 10 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg, i.p.) or saline, 2 h prior to cisplatin administration (5 mg/kg, i.p.). Renal function was assessed 3 and 7 days after cisplatin treatment. A second group of rats received losartan (10 mg/kg, i.p.) or saline… CONTINUE READING
