Icariin protected renal function against chronic kidney disease. The levels of blood urea nitrogen (a), serum creatinine (b), and serum uric acid (c) were measured by specific colometric methods. BNU, blood urea nitrogen; CR, serum creatinine; UA, uric acid. Data was expressed as mean ± standard deviation (n = 15). *, p < 0.01 compared to sham group; #, p < 0.01 compared to CKD model group
