Italian term or phrase: enzimemia
la filtrazione glomerulare, l’enzimemia ed il test BSF

blood enzymes
Explanation:
The cognate "enzymemia" (from "enzyme" + "-emia" ("in the blood")) is a rather lame calque.

You probably already have "glomerular filtration."

"BSF test" in this context probably refers to the test for the B-cell stimulating factor (BSF). (The other physiological expansion, "bovine serum factor," is more commonly used in veterinary medicine.)

Cheers, HC
