We investigated an effect of ureteral obstruction on a progressive immune complex glomerulonephritis in murine lupus erythematosus. Unilateral ureteral obstruction for 8 days significantly decreased the expanded glomerular mesangial area, as measured by computer-assisted morphometry (4.44 +/- 0.33 x 10(-4) mm2 to 3.60 +/- 0.34 x 10(-4) mm2, P < .05), and… CONTINUE READING
