Résumé
There is an evident and growing medical need for an accurate determination of kidney function for a broad spectrum of indications. The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the most accepted indicator of renal function. Due to difficulties in performing the test, GFR is currently determined rarely in clinical practice. A procedure for such GFR determination has to be safe, accurate and easy to handle. By using the new compound fluorescein isothiocyanate-sinistrin (FS) these requirements are met. The pharmacological profile and tolerability of FS, selected from among various newly synthesized, labelled compounds intended for use as GFR markers, was characterized in male Sprague-Dawley rats following i.v. application. Using the newly described fluorometric method, FS can be determined much more easily in serum and urine than with the established enzymatic method. After i.v. dosing, FS concentrations in serum declined rapidly in various experimental groups to a comparable extent (t1/2, mean±SD: 22.4±8.3 to 26.2± 5.4 min). Its increase after unilateral nephrectomy reflects the loss of filtration capacity. Comparable concentration-time curves of FS in serum measured fluorometrically and enzymatically suggest no relevant alteration of pharmacokinetic behaviour by the labelling. This notion is supported by the high urinary excretion rate and absence of biliary excretion. The higher sensitivity of the fluorometric method suggests a dose of FS of 100 mg in humans compared with
