BACKGROUND Estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) from serum creatinine (Scr) or cystatin C (Cys C) exhibit variable performances. METHODS We compared the performances of 14 Scr and 9 Cys C estimated GFR equations using inulin clearance (Clin) as the reference test in 103 stable renal transplant populations. Bias, precision, receiving operation characteristics (ROC), accuracy within 30% ranges from the reference method and agreements of each test were compared. RESULTS Mean Clin was… CONTINUE READING
