N-Acetylcysteine Attenuates Cisplatin-Induced Acute Kidney Injury by Inhibiting the C5a Receptor

Figure 1

Establishment of cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) model in mice. (a) Serum creatinine (Cr) and (b) urea nitrogen (BUN) levels were measured after 22 mg/kg cisplatin injection. (c) PAS staining was conducted on kidney sections. The cisplatin-treated kidneys marked injury after 72 h. (d) Semiquantitative analysis of PAS staining for the severity of renal injury. The values are presented as the means±SEM, n = 8. P < 0.01; P < 0.001.
