The study of 14 normal young men by glucose titration procedures has defined the magnitude of splay in this population, differing from previously reported data in its unexpected deviation from the line of theoretic unity high on the titration curve. Compared to these normal subjects, a group of glucosuric men could be divided into two subclasses, those with(More)
In summary, IgA-associated glomerulonephritis is an interesting clinical problem. The immunohistochemical identification of renal IgA deposits is the sine qua non of its diagnosis, although most of the patients reported have had hematuric syndromes, particularly recurrent gross hematuria. The importance of this immunopathologic entity devolves from the(More)
The purpose of the present experiments was to evaluate the role of circulating antibodies in the rejection of human renal allografts and to study the apparent target(s) for antibody binding. Eluates obtained from surgical biopsy and nephrectomy specimens of rejecting, cadaveric human renal allografts were tested for antibodies directed to structural(More)
Using a sheep antiserum to human glomerular basement membrane (GBM), studies of urine from healthy adults showed the presence of two cross-reactive antigens. These antigens were purified partially by preparative electrophoresis and electrofocusing, and separated on G-200; both appeared to be acidic, of high molecular weight, and carbohydrate rich. Their(More)
Eighty patients had idiopathic renal hematuria and normal renal function. Renal biopsy showed minimal changes or focal glomerulonephritis in two thirds of the patients. The remainder exhibited diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis and included nine patients with segmental glomerular sclerosis. Electron microscopy disclosed alterations of the capillary(More)
