Reduced kidney function is a risk factor for atrial fibrillation.
Kuopio, Finland. In Nephrology (carlton), Feb 2016
Cystatin C- and creatinine- based estimation of glomerular filtration rate (eGFRcys and eGRFcreat , respectively) and urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) were assessed to investigate their relationship with the risk of atrial fibrillation.
A systematic review of biomarkers in the diagnosis of infective endocarditis.
Århus, Denmark. In Int J Cardiol, Feb 2016
Based on current research, N-terminal-pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) alone or in combination with Cystatin C (Cys C), lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP), troponins, aquaporin-9 (AQP9), S100 calcium binding protein A11 (S100A11), E-selectin (CD62E) and VCAM-1 (CD54) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are potential biomarkers for future studies.
The correct renal function evaluation in patients with thyroid dysfunction.
Catanzaro, Italy. In J Endocrinol Invest, Nov 2015
Current data, in fact, demonstrate that either subclinical or overt thyroid disease is associated with significant changes in creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate, measured glomerular filtration rate and Cystatin C. Herein, we systematically reviewed several relevant studies aiming at the identification of the most sensitive and specific parameter for the correct renal function evaluation in patients with thyroid dysfunction, that are usually treated as outpatients.
Cystatin C versus creatinine in determining risk based on kidney function.
San Francisco, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2013
BACKGROUND: Adding the measurement of cystatin C to that of serum creatinine to determine the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) improves accuracy, but the effect on detection, staging, and risk classification of chronic kidney disease across diverse populations has not been determined.
