    Thirty-eight simultaneous renal (R-Cin) and infusion (INF-Cin) clearances of inulin were done. The equilibration period preceding the clearance studies was of at least two hours duration. The R-Cin on each subject was based on two clearance periods during which the plasma inulin concentration...

    This article focuses on efficient morphometric analysis of glomerular mesangium in insulin-dependent diabetic patients with early nephropathy. Expansion of the mesangium at the expense of glomerular capillary filtration surface area is a key mechanism leading to progressive loss of renal...

    Healthy volunteers (N = 9) and patients with varying degrees of renal insufficiency (N = 36) were given a low dose of dopamine and/or amino acids intravenously during a simultaneous measurement of the glomerular filtration rate and the effective renal plasma flow.

    In clinical nephrology, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has been recognized as the golden standard to assess renal function. However, a normal GFR does not necessarily mean normal filtration capability of the kidneys, because impaired filtration capability can be compensated for by...
