Abstract

Objective It was assessed whether cystatin C (cysC) could be used as a marker of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by considering the technetium-99m diethylenetriamine penta-acetate (Tc-99m DTPA)-two blood sample method (GFR(Tc-99m DTPA)) as the reference in pediatric patients under chemotherapeutic treatment.
