This concise textbook of renal physiology for medical students will also meet the needs of others such as students of biology or nursing. The edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of advances in research. Many parts have been completely rewritten, including sections on glomerular filtration, tubular transport processes, the reninangiotensin system and renal prostaglandins. New sections on topics such as tubulo-glomerular feedback, atrial natriuretic peptides and the processing of the ADH precursor molecule, have been added. Many figures have been redrawn, and problems have been included at the end of some chapters.
