Glomerular permselectivity factors are not responsible for the increase in fractional clearance of albumin in rat glomerulonephritis.

The increased fractional clearance of albumin in nephrotic states has long been attributed to glomerular permselectivity dysfunction. Using radiolabeled rat serum albumin, transferrin, IgG, and polydisperse Ficoll, this study investigated the changes in their in vivo fractional clearance in puromycin aminonucleoside nephrosis and anti-glomerular basement… CONTINUE READING
