BACKGROUND Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimation equations have never been validated in the HIV population. This pilot study aimed to compare all currently available methods of kidney function assessment with nuclear GFR in HIV-infected adults. METHODS Patients underwent GFR measurement with (99m)Tc-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Tc-99m Pentetate), and measured values were compared with results of creatinine-based estimation equations [abbreviated 4-variable Modification of Diet in… CONTINUE READING
