Evaluation of kidney function is crucial in the care of kidney transplant recipients and in the design and interpretation of clinical trials in transplantation. Kidney function is most commonly assessed in both instances using serum creatinine concentration or an estimate of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) based on serum creatinine. These are inexpensive, widely available, and easily administered. Both have significant drawbacks, notably with respect to their inability to accurately identify… CONTINUE READING
