A curvilinear relationship of potential type was observed between serum concentrations of cystatine C and creatinine in 187 patients attended at our Nephrology Department. This relationship became linear when considering the reverse values, but the estimation error was much higher than what is clinically acceptable, which prevents the interconversion of values. In 78 critical patients, in whom an antibiotic therapeutic monitoring was being carried out, serum creatinine concentrations in the… Expand
