Renal preservation with inosine

Urology. 1980 Oct;16(4):343-5. doi: 10.1016/0090-4295(80)90134-x.


Isosine improved post-transplantation function of canine kidneys subjected to thirty minutes of normothermic ischemia followed by flushing and twenty-four-hour cold storage. Inosine was not able to improve renal preservation when cold storage was extended to forty-eight hours after thirty minutes of normothermic ischemia.
