BACKGROUND Guidelines for kidney function monitoring and antiretroviral drug dosing are available and respectively refer to glomerular filtration rate and creatinine clearance (CrCl). OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare kidney function estimates vs. measured 24-h CrCl in HIV-infected subjects. METHODS A cross-sectional design was used, with comparison of Cockcroft-Gault (CG), original and simplified modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) equations vs. measured 24-h CrCl… CONTINUE READING
