Serum cystatin C in mouse models: a reliable and precise marker for renal function and superior to serum creatinine.


BACKGROUND Serum creatinine (SCR) and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) determine the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) improperly in acute renal failure. Serum cystatin C (CYS) has the potential to be a more precise marker for GFR. The aim of this study was to compare the sensitivity of SCR, BUN and CYS with respect to the detection of acute renal failure in mice… (More)
