The uroselectan blood-curve falls steeply in the first two hours, less steeply later. When the renal function is normal no more uroselectan is present in the blood after 4 hours. Values under 0.5 g. after 4 hours indicate a low grade of renal insufficiency. Values over 0.5 g. indicate a higher grade of renal damage. According to the degree of renal insufficiency more or less large amounts of uroselectan are found in the blood. The use of the 4 hour uroselectan test in the blood is recommended as a new test for urinary retention.
