Blood clots in veins that are located in the kidneys Complete or partial blockage of urine flow in the kidneys Chronic kidney disease When renal papillae die in sufficient numbers, the kidneys become deficient at concentrating urine for its discharge from the body. In most cases, failure to properly treat RPN results in kidney failure, a life-threatening condition.
Neither the Commission of the European Communities nor any person acting on behalf of the Commission is responsible for the use which might be made of the information contained in this report. The main objective of the IPCS is to carry out and disseminate evaluations of the effects of chemicals on human health and the quality of the environment.
Supporting activities include the development of epidemiological, experimental laboratory, and risk-assessment methods that could produce internationally comparable results, and the development of manpower in the field of toxicology.
Other activities carried out by the IPCS include the development of know-how for coping with chemical accidents, coordination of laboratory testing and epidemiological studies, and promotion of research on the mechanisms of the biological action of chemicals.

Renal papillary necrosis Papillary necrosis is a chronic renal injury that has been most commonly associated with long-term analgesic abuse, particularly with phenacetin, From: Textbook of Pediatric Rheumatology (Sixth Edition), INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME ON CHEMICAL SAFETY ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH CRITERIA PRINCIPLES AMD METHODS FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF NEPHROTOXICITY ASSOCIATED WITH EXPOSURE TO CHEMICALS This report contains the collective views of an international group of experts and does not necessarily represent the decisions or the stated policy of the United Nations .
Renal papillary necrosis is a form of nephropathy involving the necrosis of the renal papilla. Lesions that characterize renal papillary necrosis come from an impairment of the blood supply and from subsequent ischemic necrosis that is diffuse. were reviewed for renal papillary necrosis (RPN).
