The formation of slough (dead tissue) on a wound is widely accepted as an inhibitor to natural wound healing. In this article, a system of differential equations that models slough/wound interaction is developed. We prove a threshold theorem that provides conditions on the amount of slough to guarantee wound healing. As a state-dependent time scale,(More)
The glomerular permselectivity to polydisperse neutral dextrans was compared in 6 patients with thin membrane nephropathy (TMN) and 10 healthy controls. Despite having normal renal hemodynamics and minimal proteinuria, the patients with TMN had significantly increased fractional clearance of neutral molecules with Stokes radius > 42 A.
