Volume four of latest Nephrology summarizes significant advances in sixteen various parts of nephrology throughout the years 1985 and 1986. significant alterations within the composition of the Editorial Board and authorship of different chapters have happened during this quantity. Six extraordinary participants have retired from the Editorial Board. They comprise Dr. Zalman A. Agus, Philadelphia; Dr. Robert Anderson, Denver; Dr. Eli Friedman, Brooklyn; Dr. Richard Glassock, Torrance, California; Dr. James Schafer, Birmingham, Alabama; and Dr. Gordon Williams, Bos­ ton. we're thankful to them for his or her striking contributions to the of this sequence and for his or her recommendation and recommendations as first 3 volumes participants of the Editorial Board. They definitely deserve tremendous credits for the luck of this sequence. Seven awesome academicians have joined the Board. They in­ clude Dr. Vito M. Campese, Professor of medication on the collage of Southern California, who contributed the bankruptcy on "Recent Advances within the position of the Renal frightened method and Renin in Hypertension"; Dr. William G. Couser, Professor of medication and Head of the department of Nephrology on the college of Washington in Seattle ("Immunologic features of Renal Disease"); Dr. Garabed Eknoyan, Professor of drugs and vp of the dep. of drugs at Baylor collage of medication ("The Uremic Syndrome"); Dr. H. David Humes, affiliate Professor of medication and leader of the Nephrology part on the Uni­ versity of Michigan clinical institution, Veterans management clinical middle ("Acute Renal Failure and poisonous Nephropathy"); Dr.

Driving Forces for Isosmotic Water Transport If water transport in proximal tubule and gallbladder is by osmosis, the driving forces required to account for the spontaneous fluid transport rates are of at most a few milliosmoles in the case of the gallbladder, and between 1 and 20 milliosmoles in the case of the proximal tubule, depending on the segment and the Pos values chosen for the calculation.

De- LUIS REUSS and CALVIN U. conON 18 pending on the water transport pathway, such osmotic pressure differences might be effective across the junctional complexes or the cell membranes. In principle, it is not necessary that the total osmolalities of the solutions be different. 6, if the solutions differ in composition, and the reflection coefficients of the constituent solutes are also different, an effective osmolality difference will be present. If the driving force for isosmotic fluid absorption is a difference in total osmolality, solute transport must result in a decrease in luminal solution osmolality, an increase in the osmolality of a basolateral compartment, or a combination of both.

In flat epithelia, such as gallbladder, reduction of unstirred layer thickness is more difficult. However, the solute concentrations in the external solutions and the driving forces depend only on distance from the membrane surface, making formal analysis of the results easier. 1. P:" in Proximal Renal Tubules. P~s has been measured in mammalian and amphibian proximal tubules by a variety of techniques. We shall briefly discuss these techniques before summarizing the results of the measurements.
