• glomerular
  • Briefly, GFR will be determined by calculating the glomerular clearance (Cl) from plasma concentrations (P) and renal excretions per unit of time (UxV) during infusion at a constant plasma level of the tracer (Cl=UxV/P). The result will be given as mean value of several consecutive clearances. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Moreover, is the now widespread use of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in lieu of serum creatinine levels creating even more confusion, especially in those with abnormalities in one but not the other indirect measure of renal function? (diabetesjournals.org)
  • In this study, patients with chronic renal insufficiency (CKD1-5, defined by glomerular filtration rate3GFR) and healthy people as control will be recruited (50/group, total 300). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Treatment
  • Renal insufficiency would increase whole body radiation to some extent, but its effect on treatment of the residual thyroid would not necessarily be in the same direction since retention of stable iodine might tend to decrease fractional RAIU. (thyroidmanager.org)
