The levels of serum cystatin C (CysC) and creatinine (Cr) were determined in small-for-gestational-age (SGA) babies and compared with those for normal term newborns appropriate for gestational age (AGA), at birth and 3 days later. We then compared a number of cysC-based, Cr-based and combined formulas for estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) with the neonatal reference GFR. Fifty full-term SGA and 50 AGA newborns were enrolled in the study. Kidney volume measurements were performed by… CONTINUE READING
