BACKGROUND: The recent evaluation of the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation for estimating the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in multiple ethnicities has raised the question on how well this equation performs for African-American and Asian subjects. There is no doubt that serum creatinine (Scr) concentration differs between ethnicities and sexes. We show that creatinine-based equations for white populations may be inaccurate for estimating GFR in other ethnic/gender groups, especially in populations from Asia. METHODS: This study presents a mathematical analysis of the CKD-EPI-equation complemented with a literature review of median and reference values for IDMS-standardized Scr-concentrations for multiple ethnicities. RESULTS: The study shows that at equal eGFR-CKD-EPI-values, the ratio of Scr between females and males equals 0.79 and between other ethnicities/sexes and white males is constant too. From this information, it is possible to calculate mean Scr-values that correspond very well with literature values directly obtained from Scr-distributions in healthy white males and females and in black males, but the discrepancy is larger for other populations. CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm the criticism that has been raised for using the CKD-EPI-equation for these ethnicities. An alternative eGFR-model is proposed based on a population-normalized Scr that needs further validation. [less ▲]

In nephrology, chronic kidney disease is defined by both proteinuria and measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). This article focuses on GFR and different ways to define its normal reference values. In this context, we compare two perspectives: first the reference values defined by measuring GFR in normal individuals (the 'classical way') and secondly a fixed cut-off value at 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) according to the associated mortality risk (the 'prognostic way'). Following the classical way, we can assert that normal GFR values are largely over 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) in healthy subjects, at least before the age of 70 years. However, we know that GFR physiologically decreases with age, and in adults older than 70 years, values below 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) could be considered normal. Following the 'prognostic way', the fixed cut-off of 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) has been retained in the K-DIGO guidelines. However, we challenge this concept and the fact that the variable 'age' is poorly taken into account in these data. There is an obvious discrepancy between the reference values defined either by the 'classical way' or by the 'prognostic way' which we think could be largely reduced, if age was better taken into consideration in these definitions.

Among issues susceptible to hamper a reliable measurement of inulin clearance, those regarding the dosage of inulin are largely neglected. We have compared the analytical performances of 2 commonly used methods of inulin dosage (one “acid” and one “enzymatic” method) and studied their potential impact on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) value given by inulin clearance. Repeatability, uncertainty and the beta-expectation limits were evaluated from pre-determined serum and urine pools of inulin. Agreement between the two methods was analyzed from 99 inulin clearances performed in renal transplant patients. Impact of the method of dosage on GFR evaluation was simulated according to the respective beta-expectations limits of each method. Overall, intra-assay coefficient of variability and relative bias were inferior to 5% and 10% for both methods. Contrary to the acid method, analytical performance of the enzymatic method was not influenced by the presence of glucose. The relative difference in GFR values obtained with the two methods in transplant patients was − 0.4 ± 10%. Simulations suggested that changes in inulin concentration attributable to analytical error could modify the value of GFR from − 12% to + 28%. In conclusion, while analytical performances are globally acceptable for both methods, they are not strictly equivalent. The impact on the determination of GFR, albeit limited, is not negligible and adds to other sources of inaccuracy. International standardization for the dosage of inulin is necessary. [less ▲]

Renal transplantation from living kidney donors is still relatively marginal in most of the European countries. However, this source of kidney grafts may help to overcome in part the organ donor shortage of cadaveric donors. The living donor strategy implies correct and objective information about donation risks and completely free acceptance of the living candidate of the donation. In this paper, we reviewed the consequences of kidney donation on the living donor health, considering very short term (linked to the surgery), short term (effect of nephrectomy on glomerular filtration rate) and long term (risk of mortality, chronic kidney disease, proteinuria and hypertension) consequences of kidney donation.

Le diagnostic precoce de l’insufissance renale aigue (IRA) est necessaire et devrait se faire au stade de lesion renale avant meme la degradation du debit de filtration glomerulaire. Plusieurs biomarqueurs d’atteinte renale aigue sont actuellement a l’etude. Parmi ceux-ci, le Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) semble l’un des plus prometteurs et fait l’objet de nombreuses publications. La performance diagnostique de NGAL, dose dans le plasma ou les urines, pour le depistage de l’IRA depend de nombreux facteurs. Bien que les donnees experimentales recentes soient en faveur de l’utilisation preferentielle du dosage urinaire de NGAL, les donnees cliniques issues de nombreuses etudes ne permettent pas de trancher formellement sur la superiorite du dosage urinaire par rapport au dosage plasmatique pour le depistage des atteintes renales aigues. Il n’en reste pas moins que sur le plan analytique, les techniques de dosage du NGAL urinaire sont actuellement plus fiables que celles du dosage plasmatique. La performance diagnostique de NGAL dans un contexte d’IRA est maximale en chirurgie cardiaque pediatrique. Les resultats, chez l’adulte en postoperatoire de chirurgie cardiaque et dans d’autres situations (reanimation, urgences, transplantation), sont moins convaincants. Par ailleurs, il n’est actuellement pas possible d’extrapoler des etudes cliniques une valeur seuil discriminante unique de NGAL, aussi bien dans les urines que dans le plasma. D’autres etudes sont necessaires pour valider definitivement NGAL comme biomarqueur de l’atteinte renale aigue et en preciser les conditions d’utilisation en pratique clinique. [less ▲]
