Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{K}$ be a commutative field of characteristic zero, $ \mathcal{A}$ be a domain containing $ \mathcal{K}$ and $ \partial$ be a locally nilpotent $ \mathcal{K}$-derivation of $ \mathcal{A}$. We give in this paper a description of the differential $ \mathcal{K}$-algebra $ (\mathcal{A},\partial)$ under the assumptions that the ring of constants $ \mathcal{A}^{\partial}$ of $ \partial$ is a PID, $ \partial$ is fixed point free and its special fibers are reduced.
