Renal failure: MDRD equation for estimating the glomerular filtration rate
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
Ann Intern Med. 2006 Aug 15;145(4):247-54 Cohorts
IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation The Use of
4-variable Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation
As Diagnostic Tool
Is better Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation
To estimate measured (125I-iothalamate) glomerular filtration rate with less than 30% error: 90% MDRD VS 60% Cockcroft VS 83% corrected Cockcroft
Clin J Am Soc Nephrol. 2009 May;4(5):899-906 Cohorts
IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation The Use of
Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation
As Diagnostic Tool
Is equal Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation
To estimate measured (inuline) glomerular filtration rate rate with less than 30% error: 69% MDRD equation VS 71% Cockcroft

IN kidney disease, chronic, glomerular filtration estimation, ill hospitalized patients The Use of
6-variable Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation
As Diagnostic Tool
Is better Than
Cockcroft-Gault equation
To estimate measured (125I-iothalamate) glomerular filtration rate with less than 50% error: 55% MDRD equation VS 40% Cockcroft. However, overall accuracy and precission of both equations in ill hospitalized patients was poor
