Well, his fellow CBSi colleagues did not disappoint.

Acute Kidney Injury Has a New Biomarker

Acute Kidney Injury (Contributions to Nephrology)Good day Doctors:

There is a new acute kidney injury biomarker which has just been launched abroad and will perhaps be on its way to Philippine shores in the near future.

It is NGAL or neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (an ubiquitous 25 kDa protein), a new early marker for acute kidney injury which levels rise rapidly after renal injury (rises earlier than creatinine) and one test is an ELISA for the determination of human NGAL in urine, plasma or serum. There is another that can be used with a laboratory's chemistry analyzer.
