Abstract:

Cisplatin is widely used as an effective chemotherapy in diverse neoplasms and is associated with renal toxicity. Several studies suggest that pre-hydration plus mannitol prior to chemotherapy with cisplatin prevents nephrotoxicity. The aim of this study is to determine the acute effects of hydration plus mannitol on renal function in patients receiving cisplatin.
