Two Novel Equations to Estimate Kidney Function in Persons Aged 70 Years or Older
BACKGROUND In older adults, current equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are not validated and may misclassify elderly persons in terms of their stage of chronic kidney disease. Expand

An estimated glomerular filtration rate equation for the full age spectrum.
BACKGROUND Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is accepted as the best indicator of kidney function and is commonly estimated from serum creatinine (SCr)-based equations. Separate equations have beenExpand

Estimating glomerular filtration rate for the full age spectrum from serum creatinine and cystatin C
Background. We recently published and validated the new serum creatinine (Scr)‐based full‐age‐spectrum equation (FAScrea) for estimating the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for healthy andExpand

The Berlin initiative study: the methodology of exploring kidney function in the elderly by combining a longitudinal and cross-sectional approach
Epidemiologic data on incidence, prevalence and risk factors for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its progression to kidney failure in people ≥70 years are scarce. This lack may have two reasons:Expand

Iohexol plasma clearance measurement in older adults with chronic kidney disease-sampling time matters.
BACKGROUND Accurate and precise measurement of GFR is important for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Sampling time of exogenous filtration markers may have great impact on measured GFRExpand

Iohexol plasma clearance for measuring glomerular filtration rate in clinical practice and research: a review. Part 1: How to measure glomerular filtration rate with iohexol?
While there is general agreement on the necessity to measure glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in many clinical situations, there is less agreement on the best method to achieve this purpose. As theExpand

Normal reference values for glomerular filtration rate: what do we really know?
In nephrology, chronic kidney disease is defined by both proteinuria and measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). This article focuses on GFR and different ways to define its normal referenceExpand

Measures of chronic kidney disease and risk of incident peripheral artery disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data.
BACKGROUND Some evidence suggests that chronic kidney disease is a risk factor for lower-extremity peripheral artery disease. We aimed to quantify the independent and joint associations of twoExpand
