A study was conducted to examine the validity of the isolated rabbit tubule model as a tool in the study of nephrotoxicants and to determine the validity of the rabbit tubule model as a predictor of nephrotoxicity in humans. Kidney proximal tubules were isolated from control and phenobarbital induced rabbits by nonenzymatic sieving techniques and then studied in-vitro. Proximal tubules obtained in bulk by nonenzymatic procedures were resistant to cell damage by levels of chloroform (67663) and carbon-tetrachloride (56235) likely to be encountered in the work place. Drug treatment of the rabbits followed by tubule isolation and exposure to these solvents in-vitro did not enhance cell damage. Tubule cells propagated in-vitro were more susceptible to cell damage caused by these organic solvents.
