01/01/2007 - "Moreover, we also examined whether rosuvastatin-induced changes in proteinuria would be due to the effect of the drug on permselective properties of glomerular capillary barrier, measured by the fractional clearance of graded-size Ficoll molecules and/or by proximal tubular mechanisms, by assessing urinary excretion of beta(2)-microglobulin. "
11/01/2000 - "The purpose of the present study was to determine whether such a barrier defect could be demonstrated with mild proteinuria by substituting Ficoll 70, a polysucrose, for dextran as a probe of the filtration barrier. "
09/01/1997 - "We interpret the more realistic values for pore parameters derived from Ficoll than dextran sieving to indicate 1) that the normal glomerular barrier prevents albuminuria by virtue of a combination of both charge- and size-selective properties and 2) that a combined impairment of both barrier charge selectivity and size selectively are required to account for the observed level and composition of proteinuria in our nephrotic subjects."
01/01/1996 - "Infusion of either albumin or ficoll normalized apo A-I, and apo E levels in HN even though proteinuria continued unabated. "
11/01/2009 - "Uninephrectomized rats made diabetic by streptozotocin received orally placebo, lisinopril (12.5 mg/l), the ET(A) receptor antagonist avosentan (30 mg/kg), or their combination from 4 (when animals had proteinuria) to 8 mo. Proteinuria, renal damage, podocyte number, nephrin expression, and glomerular size selectivity by graded-size Ficoll molecule fractional clearance were assessed. "
