    The Schwartz formula (eGFR = kL/Scr, with k = 0.55) to determine the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD), based on length (L) and serum creatinine (Scr) has recently been updated for enzymatic serum creatinine concentrations, resulting in k =...

    Introduction: Chronic renal failure is defined as progressive and irreversible loss of renal functions that gradually progress to end-stage renal disease. The etiology of chronic renal failure in childhood correlates closely with the age of patient at the time when the renal failure is first...

    During the period from January 1973 to December 1990, 774 renal transplantations in 698 children were performed in our renal unit. A total of 540 grafts were examined both by light and immunofluorescence microscopy at least once. Recurrent glomerulonephritis was diagnosed in 62 grafts, de novo...

    Background: Since the original Schwartz formula overestimates glomerular filtration rate (GFR), it is proposed that the constant ( k) that accounts for the method of creatinine estimation be derived locally. We derived a new k for height (cm)/serum creatinine (mg/dl) (ht/scr) equation by...

    Background: In our clinical experience, cystatin C (CysC) concentrations are not as high as expected in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and high-stage renal dysfunction. We therefore investigated whether measurements of serum CysC result in an underestimation of renal dysfunction in...

    Background. Studies on renal function in children with Fabry disease have mainly been done using estimated creatinine-based glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The aim of this study was to compare estimated creatinine-based GFR (eGFR) with measured GFR (mGFR) in children with Fabry disease and...

  • Determination of Clara cell protein urinary elimination as a marker of tubular dysfunction. Martín-Granado, Ascensión; Vázquez-Moncholí, Carmen; Luis-Yanes, María; López-Méndez, Marisela; García-Nieto, Víctor // Pediatric Nephrology;Apr2009, Vol. 24 Issue 4, p747 

    Clara cell 16-kDa protein (CC16) is a protein expressed primarily by the bronchial cells. It is rapidly eliminated by glomerular filtration, reabsorbed almost entirely, and catabolized in proximal tubule cells. To date, normal values for urinary CC16 in healthy children have not been determined....
