Abstract

In order to assess to what extent glomerular or tubular function is involved in the renal handling of amylase, the amylase and the lysozyme to creatinine clearance ratios (C(Am)/C(Cr) and C(Lys)/C(Cr)) were evaluated in 22 healthy volunteers and in 71 patients with different renal diseases. In normal controls, the mean C(Am)/C(Cr) was 2.55 ±1.54 SD, with an upper normal limit of 5.56. A normal ratio was found in patients with glomerulonephritis, with or without a nephrotic syndrome, and in patients with pyelonephritis. A significantly elevated ratio (P
