THE NGAL TEST
The NGAL Test – first diagnostic acute kidney injury biomarker which can be measured in both human urine and plasma.
Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously known as acute renal failure, represents a medical emergency and encompasses a wide range of injury to the kidneys. Acute kidney injury is a rapid deterioration of renal function, resulting in an inability to maintain fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balance. AKI increase morbidity and mortality and due to the severity of acute kidney injury the healthcare costs are significant. As a result of this increased efforts into identifying new acute kidney injury biomarkers can be seen, as biomarkers addressing the need for earlier diagnosis of AKI would ultimately save lives, raise quality of life for patients worldwide and save costs for the healthcare system.
