The level of serum cystatin C has been proposed as a simple, accurate, and rapid endogenous marker of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in research and clinical practice. The measurement of serum cystatin C may detect mild to moderate decrease in GFR that are not evident with the serum creatinine measurement. In kidney transplant patients, cystatin C was reported to be more sensitive than serum creatinine for detecting decreases in GFR and delayed graft function, offering an opportunity for timely intervention.
