The Kidney: Morphology, Biochemistry, Physiology, Volume II provides a comprehensive information of the kidney under normal and pathological conditions, as revealed by physiological, biochemical, and morphological studies. This book focuses on the developments in the investigation of renal structure and function, particularly on the molecular and subcellular level. Organized into seven chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the various methods and applications of the explantation of the embryonic kidney. This text then examines the different experimental glomerular diseases by describing certain morphologic features of reaction of the glomerulus to injury. Other chapters review the various data concerning spontaneous tumors and tumors caused by various agents, including hormonal, chemical, viral, or physical. This book discusses as well the pathogenesis, histopathology, and bacteriology of experimental pyelonephritis. The final chapter explains the practical significance of the role of viruses in kidney disease. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, pathologists, morphologist, physiologists, pharmacologists, and clinicians.
