Table 1 Measure of mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) in rats

From: Protective effect of EDTA preadministration on renal ischemia

CONTROLS SHAM UNTREATMENT (mmHg) EDTA pre-treatment (mmHg)
  100 ± 8 85 ± 3*
  108 ± 11 93 ± 2*
  Before clamping End Isc or Isc/R Before clamping End Isc or Isc/R
Isc 104 ± 6 130 ± 5** 90 ± 2* 98 ± 7*
Isc/R 105 ± 6 115 ± 9 90 ± 3* 88 ± 8*
  1. EDTA pre-administration (30 min) is able to avoid the increase of MABP induced by kidney Isc. EDTA administration reduces MABP in controls and in sham-operated rats. lsc = ischemia; lsc/R = ischemia/reperfusion.
  2. *p < 0.05 vs. corresponding untreatment; **p < 0.05 vs Isc before clamping
