Furthermore, the challenge of identifying true associations between CysC
and sleep disturbances in the early PD patients related to multiple comorbidities that may confound or modify hypothesized associations.
inhibits cysteine proteinase, a proteolytic lysosomal enzyme that prevents bone resorption.
The preserved material was used to determine the concentrations of transferrin, IgG, KIM-1, and uromodulin (uUMOD) in urine and NGAL, CysC
, and uromodulin (sUMOD) in serum.

However, while the highest values (up to 5.31 ug/L) were in patients with the lowest eGFR, there was no significant correlation between the CysC
eGFR and the level (Spearman r=-0.12, Figure 1).
To overcome these limitations, we used fully documented assays, and commutable materials with target values determined using a candidate reference measurement procedure (RMP) (9, 10) to evaluate the analytical performance of most of the available assays for CysC
. Standard and expanded uncertainties were calculated by considering the uncertainties associated with bias and random effects (imprecision).

The baseline levels of Scr, BUN, CysC
, UNAG, and UGGT did not differ among the groups.
Simultaneously, the X-MAP technology was employed for the measurement of the four previously mentioned urinary markers: IP-10 (CXCL10), CysC
, NGAL and KIM-1.
The isoelectric point of cysC
is 9.3 which is why the protein is positively charged in the body fluids.
Serum cystatin C (CysC
) has been proposed as a novel biomarker of the renal function .
Patients with overt DN who take orally a lecithinized formulation of rhein turned better through decreasing microglobulin blood beta 2 ([beta]2MG), serum creatinine (Scr), serum cystatin C (CysC
), and urinary albumin excretion rate (UAER) .
