The link between cystatin C and mortality independent of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in adults has prompted the "Shrunken Pore Syndrome" (SPS) hypothesis, where high serum cystatin C with normal ...
Comparison of estimated glomerular filtration rates in Chinese patients with chronic kidney disease among serum creatinine-, cystatin-C- and creatinine-cystatin-C-based equations: A retrospective cross-sectional study.
Accurate estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and staging of chronic kidney disease (CKD) are important. Thus far, few studies in China have systematically assessed the differences among the...
Most of the current published population pharmacokinetic (PopPK) models are based on serum creatinine, but we often encounter an underestimation of its concentration in our clinical work. Therefore, w...
Shrunken pore syndrome (SPS) is a condition in which the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) based on serum/plasma cystatin C concentration is significantly lower than the eGFR based on creati...
Sufficient glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is mandatory in living kidney donors (LKD) before renal transplantation (RT). Guidelines recommend exogenous GFR (e. g. Tc-99m-DTPA) besides estimated ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health problem. The prevalence of CKD in adults in China was 10.8%. Albuminuria measurement and estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ...
The purpose of this study is to assess serum cystatin C as a marker of kidney function (glomerular filtration rate, GFR) in children aged 2-14. The individual production rate and possible ...
Acute renal failure (ARF) is a rare but serious complication of gastroenteritis and dehydration, the most common reason for pediatric emergency visits. Renal function is determined by the ...
Primary outcome: Serum creatinine change at 4 hours and 48 hours following 4 doses of N-acetylcysteine (total 4800 mg) compared to baseline serum creatinine. Secondary outcome: Serum Cyst...
Background Prevention of contrast media (CM) induced nephropathy (CIN) by pharmacological prophylaxis (e.g. N–acetylcysteine; NAC) is controversially discussed. So far, in all interventi...
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
The thin membranous structure supporting the adjoining glomerular capillaries. It is composed of GLOMERULAR MESANGIAL CELLS and their EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.
A complex of gadolinium with a chelating agent, diethylenetriamine penta-acetic acid (DTPA see PENTETIC ACID), that is given to enhance the image in cranial and spinal MRIs. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p706)
Hemagglutination test in which Coombs' reagent (antiglobulin, or anti-human globulin rabbit immune serum) is added to detect incomplete (non-agglutinating, univalent, blocking) antibodies coating erythrocytes. The direct test is applied to red cells which have been coated with antibody in vivo (e.g., in hemolytic disease of newborn, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and transfusion reactions). The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibody (e.g., in detection of incompatibility in cross-matching tests, detection and identification of irregular antibodies, and in detection of antibodies not identifiable by other means).
