    The renal clearance of creatinine following reopening of the ureter in eight dogs with a nonfiltering kidney was found to be very low and to average 2.2 ml/min. The secretion of renin was variable. These studies provided evidence that in the nonfiltering kidney model in dogs there is no glomerular filtration occurring even in the deeper nephrons. The authors thank Mr. Robert Monroe, Mr. John Haas, and Mrs. Ellen Roper for expert technical assistance.
