Using race in the estimation of glomerular filtration rates: time for a reversal?

Summary of "Using race in the estimation of glomerular filtration rates: time for a reversal?"

Bedside estimates of renal function are essential for clinical practice in the modern era and have largely relied on serum creatinine concentrations despite the known drawbacks associated with this choice of biomarker, including the fact that creatinine clearance overestimates the glomerular filtration rate.

The value of kinetic glomerular filtration rate estimation on medication dosing in acute kidney injury.

In acute kidney injury (AKI), medication dosing based on Cockcroft-Gault creatinine clearance (CrCl) or Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) estimated glomerular filtration rate...

Comparison of creatinine-based methods for estimating glomerular filtration rate in patients with heart failure.

Glomerular filtration rate is an important factor in management of heart failure (HF). Our objective was to validate eight creatinine-based equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) i...

A new single-sample, time-flexible, empirically-derived formula for measuring glomerular filtration rate from a single blood sample.

Measurement of glomerular filtration rate from a single blood sample using filtration markers may be based on empirical or model-based formulae. The former do not require a whole body metric but are s...

Glomerular podocytes in diabetic renal disease.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the most common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD), both in the USA and in Europe; moreover, its incidence is rising worldwide. The main laboratory markers of DN prog...

Comparison of glomerular filtration rates determined using two- and single-blood sample methods with a three-blood sample technique for 2922 paediatric studies.

Several different methods for measuring glomerular filtration rates (GFRs) have been developed in search of a more accurate and simplified technique. Currently, the main methods used are the slope-int...

Assessment of Renal Physiology by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Normal Volunteers

Estimation of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is the primary test used to assess patients with renal disease. Although serum creatinine based GFR and nuclear medicine based estimations ar...

The Relation Between the Renal Resistive Index and Glomerular Hyper Filtration

Aim of the present study is to determine whether 1. RRI can predict glomerular hyperfiltration; 2. glomerular hyperfiltration is associated with low renal resistive index; 3...

Measurement of Perioperative Glomerular Filtration Rate

Our objective is to monitor glomerular filtration rate (GFR)during the perioperative phase of patients undergoing robotic surgery for rectum or large bowel cancers. We will use both a sing...

Estimation of Glomerular Filtration Flow in Patients of Resuscitation Under Extra-bodily Assistance

The aim of the study will be to evaluate the quality of the GFR estimate of the two estimation equations (CKD-EPI and Cockcroft's formula) against the measured clearance of creatinine, whi...

Evaluation of the Renal Function in an Ultra-endurance Race.

During ultra endurance events, athletes experience extreme physical and mental demands, sometimes at the limits of the adaptive response to human physiology. This is particularly true for ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A specialized barrier in the kidney, consisting of the fenestrated CAPILLARY ENDOTHELIUM; GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE; and glomerular epithelium (PODOCYTES). The barrier prevents the filtration of PLASMA PROTEINS.

The volume of water filtered out of plasma through glomerular capillary walls into Bowman's capsules per unit of time. It is considered to be equivalent to INULIN clearance.

A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.

The thin membranous structure supporting the adjoining glomerular capillaries. It is composed of GLOMERULAR MESANGIAL CELLS and their EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.

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.
