Cystatin C is a low molecular weight protein and the plasma level of cystatin C is mainly determined by glomerular filtration, making cystatin C an endogenous marker of glomerular filtration rate. The aim of the study was to elucidate the applicability of plasma cystatin C as a marker of renal function in patients with liver cirrhosis. Serum cystatin C and creatinine concentrations were compared with creatinine clearance. Thirty-six patients (14 females and 22 males aged between 33 and 81 years… CONTINUE READING
