[Kidney lesion in mice from an antirenal serum].Arkh Patol 1975; 37(7):56-61AP
Intravenous administration of anti-renal serum in a dose 1--1.6 ml to mice line CBA brought about drastic changes in the kidney ranging from severe dystrophy of the tubule cells to necrosis of the epithelium of the proximal and straight tubules. A smaller dose (0.5 ml) produced initially degenerative changes in individual cells of the proximal convoluted and straight tubules, and 2--6 months later degenerative changes were noted almost in all cells of the tubules referred to above. The glomerular apparatus was affected in a lesser degree. The relative weight of the kidneys of the mice treated with anti-renal serum at the end of the 3rd month was less than that in control animals. The urine contained granular and hyaline cylinders and a considerable amount of protein. Concentration of urea in the blood serum of the experimental animals was found to be elevated.
