Kidney function assessed by eGFR, cystatin C and NGAL (neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin) in relation to age in heart allograft recipients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Because creatinine is an unreliable variable describing kidney function, the search for a new and sensitive marker of kidney function is underway. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) has been recently proven useful in the quantitation of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of chronic… (More)
