  • Additional information:Cystatin C is a non-glycosylated protein of low molecular weight (13kDa) in the cystatin superfamily. Cystatin C is produced at a constant rate in all nucleated cells, secreted from cells and thus found in detectable amounts in most body fluids (1,2). Cystatin C belongs to the cysteine proteinase inhibitor group and is associated with several pathological conditions. Imbalance between Cystatin C and cysteine proteinases is associated with diseases such as inflammation, renal failure, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis and hereditary Cystatin C amyloid angiopathy (1,3,4). Increased levels have been found in autoimmune diseases, with colorectal tumors and metastases, patients with inflammation and in patients on dialysis (5,6,7). Cystatin C is removed from blood plasma by glomerular filtration in the kidneys. It is reabsorbed by the proximal tubular cells and degraded. There is a linear relationship between the reciprocal Cystatin C concentration in plasma and the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Cystatin C is suggested to be a better marker for GFR than the ubiquitous serum creatinine marker as its serum concentration is not affected by other factors such as age, gender and body mass and Cystatin C has higher sensitivity to detect a reduced GFR than creatinine determination (2,5). Low levels of Cystatin C are found with the breakdown of the elastic laminae and atherosclerosis and abdominal aortic aneurysm (8). There is evident association of Cystatin C levels with the incidence of myocardial infarction, coronary death and angina pectoris, presenting a risk factor for secondary cardiovascular events (9).
