Silibinin enhances anti-renal fibrosis effect of MK-521 via downregulation of TGF-β signaling pathway.

Renal fibrosis is a common characteristic of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and it can lead to end-stage renal disease. It has been reported that silibinin or lisinopril (MK-521) can inhibit the progre...

Renoprotective effects of pirfenidone on chronic renal allograft dysfunction by reducing renal interstitial fibrosis in a rat model.

Pirfenidone (PFD) has been used as medication for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis due to its ability in reducing lung fibrosis. However, the underlying mode of action in renal fibrosis during chronic re...

New Therapies for the Treatment of Renal Fibrosis.

Renal fibrosis is the common pathway for progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) to end stage of renal disease. It is now widely accepted that the degree of renal fibrosis correlates with kidney f...

Adiponectin in renal fibrosis.

Renal fibrosis is an inevitable consequence of parenchymal scarring and is the common final pathway that mediates almost all progressive renal diseases. Adiponectin, a hormone produced by adipose tiss...

X-RAY COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY with resolution in the micrometer range.

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
