From: Icariin protects rats against 5/6 nephrectomy-induced chronic kidney failure by increasing the number of renal stem cells

Fig. 1

Icariin alleviated chronic renal failure induced morphological damages to rat kidney. The kidney histology of rats underwent sham operation, 5/6 nephrectomy (CKD model), and CKD treated with icariin was observed by Hematoxylin and Eosin staining. The representative pictures were shown. Yellow arrows indicated tubular lesion and tubules lacking obvious brush border; black arrows indicated tubular necrosis and inflammatory cell infiltration; and green arrows indicated glomerular damages
