The intravenous injection of rabbit antidog-placenta or antidog-kidney serum produced immediate evidence of glomerulonephritis in dogs. The lesions produced by the two agents were indistinguishable.
The glomerulonephritis so induced may terminate in death within 8 days, may progress to a chronic form or may heal. The acute phase of the nephritis was usually associated with severe exudative and necrotizing renal lesions, while the pathologic sequences in surviving dogs were essentially reparative. However, 1 dog of 8 in the chronic phase developed a progressive chronic nephritis and died in uremia.
