The Effect of Chronic Candesartan Therapy on the Metabolic Profile and Renal Tissue Cytokine Levels in the Obese Zucker Rat

Figure 1

Plasma creatinine (a) and urinary albumin excretion (b) in candesartan-treated (CAN) or -untreated (c) lean and obese rats at the end of 14 weeks of treatment (n=8 per body type/treatment). Obese had significantly increased albumin excretion and higher plasma creatinine relative to lean groups; CANtreated groups were significantly different from control by 2-way ANOVA (P<.05). * indicates a significant difference (P<.05) from lean control mean and # from obese control mean by unpaired t-test.
