Summary of "Diacerein protects against glycerol-induced acute kidney injury: Modulating oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis and necroptosis."

Necroptosis is suggested to have an important role in the pathogenesis of rhabdomyolysis induced acute kidney injury (AKI). In this study, the renoprotective effect of diacerein on glycerol-induced AKI was investigated. Twenty four male albino rats were included in this study and divided into four groups: (group I) saline control group, (group II) glycerol-treated group, (groups III&IV) diacerein + glycerol -treated groups (25 and 50 mg/kg/day) respectively. Renal malondialdehyde (MDA) level in addition to catalase and heme oxygenase (HO) activities were estimated. Comet assay and histopathological changes were evaluated. The levels of pro-apoptotic Bcl-2-associated X (Bax) protein, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and receptor-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinases 3 (RIPK3) were measured by ELISA. RIPK3 and mixed lineage kinase domain-like pseudokinase (MLKL) mRNA expression were assessed by real time PCR. Glycerol treatment caused significant renal histological abnormalities and functional impairment (increased urea and creatinine). Increased levels of renal MDA with concomitant decrease in renal catalase activity and significant DNA damage in comet assay were observed. High expression of RIPK3 and MLKL in the glycerol-treated group with marked elevation of Bax, TNF-α and RIPK3 levels and HO-1 activity were also documented. Diacerein treatment dependently attenuated glycerol induced structural and functional changes in kidney and significantly elicit reduction of renal tissue oxidative damage whereas it decreased renal expression of RIPK3 and MLKL, and decreased Bax, TNF-α and RIPK3 levels and HO-1 activity.
These results demonstrated that diacerein might have potential application in the amelioration of AKI via its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and anti-necroptotic effects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.

Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of glycerol 3-phosphate from ATP and glycerol. Dihydroxyacetone and L-glyceraldehyde can also act as acceptors; UTP and, in the case of the yeast enzyme, ITP and GTP can act as donors. It provides a way for glycerol derived from fats or glycerides to enter the glycolytic pathway. EC

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

Acute and chronic neurologic disorders associated with the various neurologic effects of ETHANOL. Primary sites of injury include the brain and peripheral nerves.
