Improved equations estimating GFR in children with chronic kidney disease using an immunonephelometric determination of cystatin C
Kidney International, 05/24/2012
Schwartz GJ et al. – The equation works well in children with chronic kidney disease in a range of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) from 15 to 75 ml/min per 1.73 m2. Further studies are needed to establish the applicability to children of normal stature and muscle mass, and higher GFR.
