    Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) assesses kidney function. GFR is measured by renal clearance techniques; inulin clearance is the gold standard but is not easily measured. Thus, other methods to determine GFR have been utilized. Endogenous creatinine clearance (CrCl) is the most widely used, but...

    To investigate whether the administration of cimetidine can improve the reliability of creatinine as a marker of GFR, we compared the creatinine clearance (CCr) to the clearance of the true filtration markers 51Cr-EDTA (CEDTA) and inulin (CIn), after oral ingestion of cimetidine in 10 healthy...

    Background. The real utility of blocking the tubular secretion of creatinine with cimetidine in order to ameliorate the prediction of renal graft function is questionable, particularly in the context of an increasing diffusion of the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equation....

    Many xenobiotics including the pharmacoenhancer cobicistat increase serum creatinine by inhibiting its renal active tubular secretion without affecting the glomerular filtration rate. This study aimed to define the transporters involved in creatinine secretion, applying that knowledge to...

    Renal functional reserve was measured during 89 studies in 78 children as the difference between the baseline glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and that following a protein meal. GFR was measured using creatinine as the filtration marker in children pre-treated with cimetidine. The children had...

    The purpose of this study was to describe the reproducibility of timed-urine collections for renal clearance studies and the effect variations in urine collection has on measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Data from 222 cimetidine clearance studies (GFR-Cim) were obtained from 32...
