  1. 1. Renal Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury in Diabetes : Experimental Studies in the Rat

    Author : Jan Melin; Bengt Rippe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; diabetes mellitus; ischemia reperfusion; rat; end-stage renal disease; inflammation; fibrosis; hyaluronan; CD44; treatment; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the leading causes of end stage renal failure. An increased susceptibility to renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-injury was found in DM rats. Unilateral renal ischemia for as short as 20 minutes led to an irreversible progressive injury in DM kidneys, whereas the injury in non-DM kidneys was almost reversible. READ MORE

  2. 2. The renin-angiotensin system in renal tubulogenesis. Experimental studies in the rat

    Author : Daina Lasaitiene; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : angiotensin II; extracellular matrix; inflammation; mitochondrial biogenesis; renal development; renin-angiotensin system; thick ascending limb of Henle; tubulogenesis;

    Abstract : The kidney and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are vital regulators of blood pressure and salt-water balance. In order to appropriately regulate circulatory homeostasis, the kidney must undergo normal development, in which the RAS plays a crucial role. READ MORE

  3. 3. Renal disease in primary Sjögren's syndrome

    Author : Per Eriksson; Ulla Backman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is characterised by inflammation in the lacrimal and salivary glands. The kidneys may be involved, e.g. tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) and distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA). READ MORE

  4. 4. Renal function and renal histopathology in assessment of course and prognosis in Henoch Schönlein nephritis and IgA nephropathy

    Author : Stella Edström Halling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background: Henoch Schönlein Nephritis (HSN) is a common childhood vasculitis that generally has a self-limiting course but the long-term outcome varies with the clinical picture at onset. Morbidity is high among the most severe cases, and therefore there is a need for intervention. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of Salt-Sensitive Hypertension in Hydronephrosis

    Author : Mattias Carlström; Erik Persson; Nils Wåhlin; Russell Brown; Göran Bergström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physiology; blood pressure; nephrectomy; nitric oxide; oxidative stress; renal function; renin angiotensin system; salt-sensitivity; telemetry; tubuloglomerular feedback; ureteral obstruction; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Hydronephrosis, due to ureteropelvic junction obstruction, is a common condition in infants with an incidence of approximately 0.5-1%. During the last decade, the surgical management of non-symptomatic hydronephrosis has become more conservative, and the long-term physiological consequences of this new policy are unclear. READ MORE
