We aimed to explore the regulatory relationship among the long noncoding RNA H19, micorRNA‐675 (miR‐675), the vitamin D (VD) receptor (VDR), and the early growth response protein 1 (EGR1) in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy (DN) among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM).
Expression levels of H19, miR‐675, VDR, and EGR in patients or CIHP‐1/HEK 293 cells were measured via quantitative...
This study aims to assess the efficacy and safety of Rehmannia glutinosa acteosides used in combination with the angiotensin receptor blocker irbesartan to treat primary chronic glomerulonephritis. A total of 479 patients diagnosed with primary chronic glomerulonephritis were recruited from outpatient clinics and were randomly assigned to the treatment group (Rehmannia glutinosa acteosides, two 200‐mg...
Aims: To investigate the role of parathyroid hormone‐related protein (PTHrP) in vascular calcification of patients with chronic hemodialysis.
Methods: The inferior epigastric arteries were obtained from 23 patients on chronic haemodialysis and 16 patients with renal carcinoma as control. Haematoxylin‐eosin staining, elastic fibre staining, Alizarin Red calcium staining and immunohistochemical staining...
