چکیده

Objective(s): One of the serious complications of Type1 diabetes (T1D) is diabetic nephropathy, which is accompanied with overexpression of kidney injury molecule 1 (KIM-1) and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and enhanced oxidative stress. The present study was conducted to examine the protective effect of curcumin on the expression of KIM-1, NGAL genes and oxidative damage in the kidney of T1D rats. Materials and Methods: Thirty-six adult male rats were divided into 6 groups (n=6). The control and T1D groups received treatment with curcumin or without it (80 and 130 mg/kg, respectively). After 60 days of treatment, using spectrophotometric methods, biochemical factors and oxidative stress markers were measured. Gene expression of KIM-1 and NGAL was evaluated using quantitative PCR.  Also, plasma and urine levels of these two proteins were assayed by the ELISA kit. Results: Diabetes caused a significant increase in the levels of creatinine, FBS, uric acid, urea, and creatinine in the serum, which were attenuated after the administration of curcumin. There was a significant reduction in the values of creatinine, uric acid, and urea in urine in the diabetic group whereas in the rats treated with curcumin, these values were normalized to the normal level (especially in 130 mg/kg). Curcumin administration had a significant role in modulation of serum lipid profile, and it was shown to decrease the kidney and urinary expression levels of KIM-1 and NGAL genes and improve oxidative toxic stress in the kidney tissues.Conclusion: Curcumin can play a protective role in reducing the unpleasant consequences of diabetic nephropathy.

Urine Biomarkers Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) and Kidney Injury Molecule-1 (KIM-1) Have Different Patterns in Heart Failure Exacerbation

Individuals with acute heart failure exacerbation often experience a deterioration in renal function. We sought to determine whether this deterioration is ischemic in nature and detectable by sensitive urine biomarkers neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1). We measured serial biomarker levels and evaluated the associations of these biomarkers wit...

Effects of insulin-loaded chitosan-alginate nanoparticle on RAGE expression and oxidative stress status in the kidney tissue of rats with type 1 diabetes

Objective(s): Chronic hyperglycemia leads to activation of the advanced glycation end products (AGE)-receptor (RAGE) for AGE axis and oxidative stress, which promote diabetic renal damage. This study examines the effect of insulin-loaded trimethyl chitosan nanoparticles on the kidney tissue of diabetic rats. Materials and Methods: Twenty-five male Wistar rats were randomly divided into 5 groups...

Background: Diabetic nephropathy is a common complication of diabetes mellitus type2. The neutrophil gelatinase Associated lippocallin (NGAL) is an ubiquitous protein consist of 178 amino acid. NGAL can be identified in plasma and urine starting 24 hours after a kidney injury resulting changes in glomerular filtration and tubular reabsorption and with increased secretion in tubular epithelial c...
