Many studies during the last 20 years have proposed methods for quantitative evaluation of renal excretory function without periods of constant infusion or collection of urine with its frequent errors. The methods may be clasified in two groups:  measurement of the concentration of some natural substance in blood which is retained in increasing concentration as renal function declines, such as urea or creatinine;  measurement of the rate of disappearance from plasma of some injected substance that is normally excreted rapidly by glomerular filtration or tubular secretion (1-4). The disappearance rate may be determined by analysis of serial blood
