Accuracy of cystatin C-based estimates of glomerular filtration rate in kidney transplant recipients: a systematic review.


BACKGROUND As with creatinine, cystatin C can be incorporated into a formula to estimate the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The overall performance of cystatin C-based equations in kidney transplantation is unclear with conflicting results between studies. METHODS Systematic review of adult kidney transplant recipients. Studies that reported mean bias… (More)
