A more direct way to measure glomerular albumin permeability—even in human glomeruli!

Academic Article


  • Existing methods to measure glomerular permeability are limited to relative measures using changes in size of isolated glomeruli in response to changes in oncotic pressure. Further, these techniques are not easily adapted for use with human glomeruli. In the current issue, Desideri and colleagues validate a sophisticated new technique with great promise for future understanding of the glomerular filtration barrier.
