To assess progression of renal disease and the effects of protein intake in a species phylogenically close to man, 10 young adult baboons (Papio hamadryas) were subjected to 20 to 30% infarction of the left kidney and, two months later, to right nephrectomy. They were then randomized to a synthetic diet containing either 8% or 25% protein. Hemodynamic and(More)
Minimally invasive techniques were used to collect urine with an external catheter together with automated intermittent monitoring of arterial blood pressure in awake male baboons. Using endogenous creatinine, 24-hour creatinine clearances were measured for 2 to 3 consecutive days in four intact and in four uninephrectomized baboons. Despite large(More)
