Abstract

The increase in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) due to afferent and efferent arterioles vasodilation induced by protein-load or aminoacids and/or dopamine is termed “Renal Functional Reserve” (RFR). The simultaneous infusion of aminoacids and dopamine has been showed to be additive in their effects on GFR (1).
