Evaluation of cellular proliferation (Ki67 immunostaining) in the ischemic kidneys. UIRI was performed for 21 min at 36 °C, n = 8 in the untreated group, n = 10 in sham, dexamethasone and vehicle treatment groups. Animals were euthanized after treatment (3 weeks after UIRI) and 3 weeks after treatment (6 weeks after UIRI). a: Representative images of Ki67 immunostained ischemic kidney tissue (magnification: 500x). b: Histological quantification of Ki67 positivity in ischemic kidneys. °: p < 0.05 vs. Sham, *: p < 0.05
