Abstract

The effect of noncreatinine chromogens on the endogenous creatinine clearance (ECC) during pregnancy was investigated. It was found that these chromogens measured as plasma 'creatinine' cause a significant reduction in the ECC value. This fact should be considered when the ECC value is used to evaluate renal function during pregnancy.
