There is controversy about the effect of certain drugs on cystatin C (CysC) concentrations, which would limit the usability of CysC for estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in patients with renal disease. Seventy-one children (ages 2.6 months to 18 years) with renal disease and on at least one study medication (tacrolimus, cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil, corticosteroids, fosinopril, ramipril and enalapril, losartan, cotrimoxazole) were tested in 85 nuclear medicine GFR clearance… CONTINUE READING
