The Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized by the progressive loss in renal function over a period. The progression of CKD will finally result the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Symptoms which needs permanent renal replacement therapies. Therefore, control the progression of CKD is necessary. In this study, based on the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Traditional Chinese Herbology, we developed the Kangshen Oral Solution based ona combination of different herbs for extraction. By utilizing adriamycin (ARD)-induced chronic renal failure in rats as the CKD model, our results demonstrated thatadministration of the Kangshen Oral Solution reduced the kidney disease induced weight loss in rats. The Kangshen Oral Solution could also relieve the proteinuria and kidney index induced by ARD which indicated the partially restoration of the kidney function. The improved kidney function was further supported by biochemical tests for blood total protein level, albumin level as well as cholesterol, triglycerides and Creatinine. Moreover, the histology examination also confirmed the ARD induced pathological changes in kidney was relieved by Kangshen Oral Solution. Taken together, these findings suggested Kangshen Oral solution could reduce ARD-induced nephropathy in rats model and may be employed as an alternative treatment for CKD patients. © 2015, International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine.
