Özet

Aims: Hypertension is known to cause potentially fatal kidney damage. However, it is unclear whether long-term use of antihypertensive drugs establishes any toxic effect on the kidney. This study investigate whether clonidine, methyldopa, rilmenidine, amlodipine and ramipril establish nephrotoxic effects in rats.
