Glomerular barrier function was evaluated in 12 healthy human volunteers and in 16 proteinuric patients in whom the nephrotic syndrome was associated with alteration of glomerular epithelial cells alone (minimal change nephropathy [MCN]) or in combination with focal glomerular sclerosis (FGS). We determined the glomerular sieving coefficient for each of nine narrow dextran fractions (Einstein Stoke radius [ESR] = 30 to 46 A), and directly measured, or indirectly estimated, values for the… CONTINUE READING
