A Japanese herbal medicine, TJ-8014, composed of Coptidis Rhizoma and other seven crude drugs (Bupleuri Radix, Pinelliae Tuber, Scutellariae Radix, Glycyrrhizae Radix, Zizyphi Fructus, Ginseng Radix and Hoelen), markedly reduced urinary protein excretion and glomerular histopathological changes, inhibited the decreases in SOD, catalase and GSH-Px activities in the renal cortex and reduced the amount of lipid peroxide in a renal failure model, suggesting that TJ-8014 is an effective treatment for nephrosis
and/or nephritis (Hattori et al.
