Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


89 Kidneys obtained from human fetuses, 6 to 31 wk of gestational age, were studied for the presence of apical periluminal antigen. Sera of rats in which nephrotic renal disease had been produced and which were known to contain considerable amounts of periluminal antibodies were used. Of the less than 12 wk old fetal kidneys, 24% showed the presence of periluminal antigen and this value increased (up to 100%) in older fetuses.
