GFR, SNGFR, glomerular capillary pressure (PGd, single nephron plasma flow (Qa), single nephron filtration fraction (SNFF), afferent (AR) and efferent (ER) resistances, afferent (7A) and efferent (7rE) oncotic pressure and ultrafiltration coefficient (Kf) were calculated.
In addition curcumin reversed the 5/6NX induced hemodynamic alterations [glomerular hypertension (increase in Pa.) and hyperfiltration (increase in SNGFR)], the oxidant stress (evaluated by MDA immunostaining) and the decrease in the activity of antioxidant enzymes (CAT, GR, GPx and GST).
Altogether these additional factors in combination with "vulnerable" kidneys accelerate the onset of CKD through the increase in the SNGFR, the reinforcing of the exacerbation of the pre-existing "renal stress", and through the transmission of elevated systemic blood pressure to enlarged glomerular capillaries.
