AIM: To determine reference values for cystatin C (CysC) and its correlation with creatinine (Cr), gestational age, birth weight and maternal Cr status in very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants. METHOD: The study included 113 VLBW premature infants (<1500 g) of ≤32 gestational week. Serum Cr and Cys C of the infant and serum Cr of the mother were analysed. RESULTS: The mean level of CysC was 1.77 ± 0.38 mg/L on day 1 and 1.61 ± 0.37 mg/L on day 3, and the decrease was statistically significant. There was a significant correlation only between maternal Cr and first-day Cr values and negative correlations between Cr and gestational age and birth weight on third day. Creatinine was not correlated with CysC both on day 1 (r=-0.077, p=0.417) and day 3 (r=0.132, p=0.164). CONCLUSION: Here we report the reference ranges for CysC and Cr on first and third day in VLBW infants. Cys C concentrations significantly decrease by day 3 compared to day 1 and are independent of gestational week, birth weight and maternal renal function status in VLBW preterm infants. © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
