Abstract

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:Erythropoietin is a promising renoprotective drug to prevent or attenuate tubular damage induced by gentamicin or other nephrotoxic agents which act through the same mechanisms as gentamicin. In this regard, to better understand the preventive properties of erythropoietin, more experimental or clinical studies are suggested.
