BACKGROUND: No study has determined the best equation for estimating renal function in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), starting from a gold standard test. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance of cistatin/creatinine based equations for estimating renal function in patients with SLE. METHODS: We conducted two phases: the first phase included 14 patients in which iothalamate clearance was used to determine the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and compared with different equations based on cystatin C and/or creatinine...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess renal morbidity, associated with the use of low flow anaesthesia (LFA), in cancer patients previously treated with nephrotoxic chemotherapeutic agents. METHODS: Seventy-five patients, aged 30-70 years, scheduled for elective surgery, were randomly allocated to three groups: Group A included those patients who had received nephrotoxic chemotherapeutic agents (cisplatin, carboplatin, methotrexate or cyclophosphamide) within 90 days before surgery, and who were anaesthetised with low flow (0...

Impairment of renal function beginning from subclinical stages is independent risk factor of development of cardiovascular diseases and cardiovascular death. Cystatin C is considered in recent years as an alternative marker of functional state of the kidney and risk of development of cardiovascular diseases. Cystatin C is a protease inhibiting protein with low molecular mass which is characterized by free glomerular filtration and is not subjected to tubular secretion. Formulas are elaborated for calculation glomerular filtration rate basing on cystatin C level...

Invasion and metastasis are the most important events in cancer progression. In these two phases, several molecules are implicated and have been long associated with several forms of cancer. Proteases play a critical role not only in tumor cell invasion, but also in the earliest stages of carcinogenesis and its associated changes: angiogenesis and metastasis. Aside from their ability to degrade the extracellular matrix, facilitate invasion and metastasis, proteases target a great variety of substrates that favor or inhibit cancer progression: b-FGF, HGF, VEGF, cell death receptors, cistatin-C, galectin, procollagen, and other proteases...

UNLABELLED: ANTECEDENTS AND OBJECTIVES: The location of the urinary tract infection in children has serious implications both in therapy and prognosis. Affectation in gammagraphic studies is considered the "gold standard" for the diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis. Several studies with biomarkers have been made with controverted results. The objective of this study is to set the utility of beta2-microglobuline, alfa1-microglobuline, Cistatine C, IgG and albumin in the location of the infection, through the analysis of the relation among their urinary excretion, clinical and laboratory parameters and the renal scintigraphy findings...
