Cystatin C and long-term mortality among subjects with normal creatinine-based estimated glomerular filtration rates: NHANES III (Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey).

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The objective was to test the association of cystatin C (Cys-C) with long-term mortality risk in the subjects with normal creatinine-based estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFR). BACKGROUND Cys-C has been proposed as a sensitive indicator of renal dysfunction that is associated with cardiovascular events. The predictive value of Cys-C for… (More)
