A 20-year follow-up evaluation of young men with fixed and reproducible orthostatic proteinuria showed no evidence of progressive renal disease. Follow-up information was obtained on 43 of the original 64 patients and detailed information was secured on 36. All had normal renal function and only six patients continued to show qualitative proteinuria. The(More)
In a retrospective clinicopathological study, 48 kidney biopsy specimens from 16 children (mean age, 7 years) and 17 adults (mean age, 33 years) with histological evidence of focal glomerular sclerosis (FGS) were examined using light, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. The histopathological findings were related to the clinical course of each(More)
With light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, the epithelium of the collecting duct was examined in rats with acute and chronic acid-base disturbances, hypokalemia, hyperkalemia, and during osmotic diuresis and hydropenia. Acid-base disturbances included acute respiratory acidosis, acute metabolic alkalosis, and chronic metabolic acidosis. Two(More)
The characteristics of inorganic phosphate transport in isolated perfused proximal tubules of the rabbit were examined using radioisotopic techniques. When tubules were perfused with an ultrafiltrate of rabbit serum, the mean lumen-to-bath flux of phosphate in the convoluted segment was 6.60 +/- 1.41 (SE) pmol/mm-min with a simultaneous back-to-lumen flux(More)
The effects of bovine parathyroid hormone (PTH) on phosphate transport were examined in proximal convoluted tubules, proximal straight tubules, and cortical collecting ducts isolated from the rabbit kidney. The lumen-to-bath flux of phosphate (JlbPO4) and the bath-to-lumen flux (JblPO4) were measured simultaneously with [33P]phosphate and [32P]phosphate. In(More)
