ABSTRACT

Xuezhikang (XZK), an extract of red yeast rice, has been widely used for the management of hyperlipidemia and coronary heart disease (CHD); however, the effects of XZK treatment on kidney injury have not yet been fully identified.

Thus, the effect on inflammatory transcription factors and kidney damage was investigated with
