Accurate assessment of renal function is of key importance, given its prognostic value. However, gold standard measures are cumbersome, and serum creatinine itself is an insensitive predictor, especially in renal transplant recipients. Though GFR-estimating formulae have been relied upon, they do have their own limitations. Nevertheless, renal biomarkers such as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and cystatin C, among others, are now emerging as potentially useful indicators of… CONTINUE READING
