Professor Rippe was president of the Swedish Society of Nephrology (2003-2005) and became an important spokesman for the establishment of the Swedish Renal Registry. Kindly note, an obituary will be published in PDI in due course.

His results contributed extensively to an increased knowledge regarding the transcapillary transport, glomerular function and the physiology of peritoneal dialysis. Bengt Rippe was appointed as Professor in Nephrology, Lund University in 1990. Conversely, studies in a rat model and in PD patients have shown that the induction of AQP1 in peritoneal capillaries by corticosteroids is reflected by increased water transport and ultrafiltration, without affecting the osmotic gradient and small-solute transport. Haploinsufficiency in AQP1 is also reflected by a significant attenuation of water transport. In 1975,. Only a few days before his death, he participated in the teaching of medical students, tutored his young research fellow at the laboratory and participated in clinical discussions. Whether increasing the expression of AQP1 or gating the already existing channels would be clinically useful in PD patients remains to be investigated. His findings regarding the 'the three pore model' for transcapillary transport was revolutionary in the field, and led to the later discovery of the 'aquaporins.'. Kidney International, 2014, peritoneal dialysis involves diffusive and convective transports and osmosis through the highly. The group predicted more than 25 years ago the presence of endothelial water-only pores, later cloned and named aquaporin-1. We will remember the generosity with which he shared his knowledge and continue to admire the humbleness that made his greatness so evident.
