Prostaglandin E(1) is a natural prostaglandin that has various pharmacological effects. It has been shown that prostaglandin E(1) has a protective action on some organs of rats treated with renal ischemia/ reperfusion. Our aim was to investigate the role of prostaglandin E(1) in rats with renal ischemia- reperfusion-induced acute renal injury. Histological, immunohistochemical, and biochemical analyses were performed. Sprague Dawley male rats were divided into four groups in this study. The first group was given physiological saline only. Second group was administered prostaglandin E(1) (20 μg/kg) only. Third group was treated with ischemia-reperfusion. Fourth group was administered prostaglandin E(1) (20 μg/kg) and applied ischemia-reperfusion. All the rats were sacrificed after the reperfusion period. Dissected kidney tissue was used for histological examination and biochemical analysis. The kidneys of the experimental group with ischemia-reperfusion model have shown histopathologic changes as an increase in proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and caspase 3 immunoreactivity, a significant decrease in reduced glutathione and DNA levels, and a significant increase in lipid peroxidation levels. In contrast, the administration of prostaglandin E(1) reversed these effects on kidneys of the animals applied ischemia-reperfusion model. As a summary, the histological, immunohistochemical, and biochemical evaluations have revealed that prostaglandin E(1) ameliorated renal damage of rats with renal ischemia/reperfusion.
