The Prior Study

The Prior Study

EMERGE and RRG are undertaking a preliminary study into the principles of fluid exchange within the body.

In 1896 Ernst Starling suggested that fluid balance and exchange resulted from the interaction of two pressures in the capillary. RRG’s own Frank Prior suggests a different mechanism of fluid balance and exchange. The Prior Hypothesis is based on the pulsatile nature of capillary flow and the inverse relationship between osmotic pressure and pore size.
The research team are currently recruiting healthy volunteers to this study. Results will build on previous work and could lead to individualised treatments for patients in shock.
