Contribution of prostaglandins to the renal responses to magnesium lithospermate B isolated from salviae miltiorrhizae radix.

The involvement of prostanoids in the improvement of adenine-induced renal failure in rats by magnesium lithospermate B was studied. After intraperitoneal administration of magnesium lithospermate B to renal failure rats, the levels of glomerular filtration rate, renal plasma flow and renal blood flow were increased. Urinary excretions of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha (6-keto-PGF1 alpha) in renal failure rats were increased by the administration of magnesium lithospermate B, while that of thromboxane B2 had no effect. Pretreatment with indomethacin abolished the improving effect of magnesium lithospermate B on renal function concomitantly with markedly suppressed urinary excretion of prostanoids. These results suggest that the increased formation of PGE2 and 6-keto-PGF1 alpha might contribute to the improvement of adenine-induced renal failure in rats by magnesium lithospermate B.[1]
