Abstract

In patients with lupus nephritis, the cimetidine-aided C(Cr) offers a compromise between the precise and accurate but expensive and inconvenient research techniques (inulin, iothalamate, or DTPA clearances) and the grossly inaccurate and imprecise but convenient technique (C(Cr)) for determining GFR.
