Cili improves the markers of oxidative stress in kidneys after UUO. Sixty rats were randomized to five groups: sham operation, UUO, UUO with losartan (UUO+losartan), UUO with moderate Cili dose (3 g/kg/d) (UUO+CL moderate), and UUO with high Cili dose (6 g/kg/d) (UUO+CL high). (a) Renal 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) levels. (b) Renal malondialdehyde (MDA) levels. (c) Renal superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels. N=12/group. The results are expressed as mean ± SD. P<0.01 vs. the sham group; △△P<0.01 vs. the UUO group; ◆◆P<0.01 vs. the losartan group.
