Determination of kidney function in patients with ovarian cancer treated with chemotherapy: calculation versus measurement of creatine clearance


Küng, F; Köchli, O R; Seifert, Burkhardt; Haller, U (1994). Determination of kidney function in patients with ovarian cancer treated with chemotherapy: calculation versus measurement of creatine clearance. Gynäkologisch-geburtshilfliche Rundschau, 34(3):157-161.

Abstract

In patients with ovarian cancer receiving chemotherapy we compared the creatinine clearance measured in the usual way with the calculation of the creatinine clearance according to the formulas of Jelliffe and Cockroft. Regression analysis only showed a moderate correlation, whereas the analysis of the data by ROC curves allows the use of these formulas as screening tests with acceptable values of sensitivity and false-positive rate. Therefore, in the majority of these patients, collecting urine over 24 h before starting chemotherapy is no longer necessary.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
