To obtain the interstitial fluid pressure and velocity in the tumor, blood flow pressure and velocity in the capillaries, a numerical scheme is proposed and the effects of different parameters such as necrotic radius, hydraulic conductivity and intercapillary distance (the distance between two capillaries) are investigated.
Grade I-Flat transparent acetowhite epithelium, fine calibre and regular vessels with small intercapillary distance.
Mesangial cells are smooth muscle-like pericytes located in the intercapillary regions of the glomerulus.
Thus, it appears that in majority of cases of chronic focal glomerulonephritis, there are diffuse intercapillary deposits associated with the focal lesions.
Diabetic nephropathy (DN), also identical to intercapillary glomerulonephritis or nodular diabetic glomerulosclerosis, is among the most lethal complications that occur in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) [1, 2].

Since the intercapillary distance (33-98 pm [19, 20]) is usually 2-3 orders of magnitude smaller than the length scale for drug transport (approximately 70 mm in this study), it is reasonable to treat the tumour and its surrounding tissues as porous media, for which the Navier-Stokes equations are applicable.
