HE staining indicated that pathological changes including the hyperplasia of the glomerular mesangial matrix, tubular atrophying and infiltration of inflammatory cells could be noted in Model group. The hirudin/liposome complex treatment reduced the atrophying of kidney tubules and infiltration of inflammatory cells in the DN rat model. (Red arrows indicate hyperplasia of the glomerular mesangial matrix; black arrows indicate atrophying of kidney tubules; blue arrows indicate infiltration of inflammatory cells, 20x). Control group (n = 10), Model group (n = 7), Liposome group (n = 7), Hirudin group (n = 8), Hirudin/liposome complex group (n = 7)
