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

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
