Abstract:

Full Citation: "OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of astragali injection on tubular and its possible mechanisms. METHODS: Sixty patients with primary nephritic syndrome (PNS) were randomly divided into astragali group (n = 30) and control group (n = 30). The surm albumin (sALB) and urinary excretion of retinol-binding protein (RBP), N-Acety-P-beta-Glucosaminidase (NAG), beta2- Microglobulin (beta2MG) were measured before and after the treatment. RESULTS: After the one month treatment, sALB was significantly higher, and ubeta2MG, uNAG, uRBP, and 24 huP were significantly lower in astragali group (P <0.01, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Astragali injection on tubular plays a protective role in PNS."
