Tryptophan glycoconjugate as a novel marker of renal function.


PURPOSE Neither serum creatinine concentration nor creatinine clearance assess renal function accurately. Serum creatinine concentration is affected by muscle mass, and the creatinine clearance overestimates the glomerular filtration rate because of tubular secretion of creatinine. The present study was designed to determine whether serum concentrations of… (More)
