We determined the proportions of matched kidney transplant isotope GFRs (iGFRs) to the estimated functions (eGFRs) calculated from Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry (IDMS), Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI), and Cockcroft-Gault (CG) equations. Method: 1403 iGFR/eGFR pairs on 390 kidney transplant patients were compared considering the iGFR or eGFR as the reference or test variable. Results: Conformity of iGFR to CG estimates demonstrated the least bias of 1.3±18.4 mL/ min/1.73 m2 (compared to 1.5±19.4 and -2.2±19.2 for IDMS and CKDI-EPI, P
