          Abstract

          <sup>51</sup>Cr-EDTA clearance, serum β<sub>2</sub>-microglobulin and serum creatinine were measured simultaneously on 271 occasions in 114 patients. Serum β<sub>2</sub>-microglobulin was more sensitive than serum creatinine for detection of changes of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and for detection of a moderately reduced GFR. However, serum β<sub>2</sub>-microglobulin also had severe limitations when used to estimate GFR. The serum levels of the protein varied considerably in patients with similar GFR, probably due to different rates of synthesis of β<sub>2</sub>-microglobulin.
