Background: Cystatin C and beta-trace protein (BTP) are low-molecular-weight proteins that have generated interest as alternative endogenous markers of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Studies examining the effect of demographic, biometric, clinical, and biochemical variables on cystatin C levels have yielded conflicting results, perhaps because of the reliance on inferior methods of GFR determination. The aim of this study is to examine the independent effect of various clinical parameters on… CONTINUE READING
