Figure 4

Representative histology sections of proliferating nuclear antigen stained kidneys. There was statistical less interstitial and glomerular cell proliferation in (b) 6% hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.42 compared with (a) 10% HES 200/0.5 and (c) Ringer's lactate (RL). Original magnification: × 200. PCNA = proliferating nuclear antigen.
