Renal function in hypercalcemic dogs during hydropenia and during saline infusion

Acta Physiologica Scandinavica
L E Lins


The effects of calcium-gluconate infusions on renal function were studied in unanesthetised dogs. Each dog was studied during hydropenia and saline infusion. Hypercalcemia, mean serum calcium 3.85 mmol/l (hydropenia) and 3.62 mmol/l (saline infusion), increased fractional excretion of sodium (CNa/CIn), calcium (CCa/CIn), and magnesium (CMg/CIn). The increase was significantly higher in saline-expanded dogs than in hydropenic dogs. Fractional excretion of potassium (CK/CIn) was increased in hydropenia but remained unchanged in saline-expanded animals. Fractional excretion of phosphate (Cp/CIn) was not consistently changed by hypercalcemia. Fractional excretion of chloride (CCl/CIn) was markedly increased in saline-expanded dogs but was not changed in hydropenia. Urine osmolality was reduced in hydropenic dogs but unchanged in saline-expanded dogs. In hydropenic as well as in saline-expanded dogs tubular reabsorption of solute-free water (TcH2O/CIn) increased during the first hour of hypercalcemia. In hydropenic dogs hypercalcemia caused a slight but significant decrease in blood pH, standard bicarbonate, and base excess. In hydropenic as well as in saline-expanded dogs glomerular filtration rate (CIn), renal plasma flow (CPAH), ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
