Cystatin C, a cysteine protease inhibitor, is a novel biomarker of renal damage. In the present study, we examined the usefulness of urinary cystatin C for the detection of diabetic nephropathy in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats compared to other biomarkers (β2-microglobulin, calbindin, clusterin, epidermal growth factor (EGF), alpha-glutathione S-transferase (GST-α), mu-glutathione S-transferase (GST-μ), kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1), neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL… CONTINUE READING
