New equations to estimate GFR in children with CKD.
The Schwartz formula was devised in the mid-1970s to estimate GFR in children. Recent data suggest that this formula currently overestimates GFR as measured by plasma disappearance of iohexol, likelyExpand

Geometric method for measuring body surface area: a height-weight formula validated in infants, children, and adults.
Estimates of body surface area were made based on measurement of 81 subjects, ranging from premature infants to adults. SA was calculated geometrically for each subject from 34 body measurements, andExpand

The use of plasma creatinine concentration for estimating glomerular filtration rate in infants, children, and adolescents.
The formula GFR = kL/Pcr can be used to estimate GFR in infants, children, and adolescents who have grossly normal body habitus and are in steady-state condition. GFR is expressed in ml/min per 1.73Expand

A simple estimate of glomerular filtration rate in children derived from body length and plasma creatinine.
Based on statistical analysis of data in 186 children, a formula was derived which allows accurate estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) from plasma creatinine and body lenghtExpand

Measurement and estimation of GFR in children and adolescents.
GFR is the best indicator of renal function in children and adolescents and is critical for diagnosing acute and chronic kidney impairment, intervening early to prevent end-stage renal failure,Expand

Improved equations estimating GFR in children with chronic kidney disease using an immunonephelometric determination of cystatin C
The Chronic Kidney Disease in Children study is a cohort of about 600 children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United States and Canada. The independent variable for our observations was aExpand

The role of carbonic anhydrases in renal physiology.
Carbonic anhydrase (CA) catalyzes the reversible hydration of CO(2). CA is expressed in most segments of the kidney. CAII and CAIV predominate in human and rabbit kidneys; in rodent kidneys, CAXII,Expand

Glomerular filtration rate measurement and estimation in chronic kidney disease
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) assesses kidney function. GFR is measured by renal clearance techniques; inulin clearance is the gold standard but is not easily measured. Thus, other methods toExpand

Direct extracellular interaction between carbonic anhydrase IV and the human NBC1 sodium/bicarbonate co-transporter.
Sodium/bicarbonate co-transporters (NBC) are crucial in the regulation of intracellular pH (pH(i)) and HCO(3)(-) metabolism. Electrogenic NBC1 catalyzes HCO(3)(-) fluxes in mammalian kidney,Expand
