Abstract

PROTEINURIA has been investigated in this laboratory in a group of patients with homotransplanted kidneys. A previously undescribed pattern was found in most cases on starch gel electrophoresis. The clinical data on these patients and the procedures for renal homotransplantation have been previously published by Hamburger et al.1. The patients' own kidneys were removed surgically in all cases. Of thirty-four patients who supported the homotransplant for more than 12 months, twenty-eight had at least a mild proteinuria in the course of the months or years following the operation. The urine specimens were concentrated to a protein consent of 40–50 g/l. before starch gel electrophoresis. The methods for urinary concentration and starch gel electrophoresis have previously been described2.
