Project Description

Kidney Glucose Reabsorption illustration was used in a patent litigation proceeding between two pharmaceutical companies. The lawsuit pertained to a patent for a drug that inhibits the renal sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) in the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose back into the blood. This illustration was created to explain to the judge the anatomy involved and the normal function of the glucose reuptake from the glomerular filtrate by both SGLT-1 and SGLT-2. The illustration was presented in PowerPoint format in court as well as printed for the judge to refer to.
