No significant differences were detected in inulin clearance ([C.sub.in]) or p-aminohippuric acid clearance ([C.sub.PAH]), between the periods (C and S), at any concentration of steviol tested.
The p-aminohippuric acid clearance ([C.sub.PAH]) values, on estimation of renal plasma flow and glomerular filtration rate measured by inulin clearance ([C.sub.in]), did not change in our experiments (Table 1) at any concentration of steviol tested.
