Authors performed renal allotransplantations on dogs, with and without immunosuppressive treatment. They also reproduced experimentally some ischaemic complications which may occur in the transplanted kidney (vascular thrombosis, ureteral obstruction, acute tubular necrosis). In all cases, the effective renal plasma flow was serially determined, using the method of hippuran I131. The diminutions registered by the E.R.P.F. are not characteristic for any of the ischaemia-inducing complications. The method may be used for the early diagnosis of acute rejection and to study the function of the transplanted kidney provided certain complications causing impairment of renal irrigation can be eliminated.
