Urinary N-acetyl-beta-(D)-glucosaminidase activity and kidney injury molecule-1 level are associated with adverse outcomes in acute renal failure.
The role of urinary biomarkers of kidney injury in the prediction of adverse clinical outcomes in acute renal failure (ARF) has not been well described. The relationship between urinaryExpand

Comparative analysis of urinary biomarkers for early detection of acute kidney injury following cardiopulmonary bypass
The purpose of this study was to compare the performance of six candidate urinary biomarkers, kidney injury molecule (KIM)-1, N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase (NAG), neutrophil gelatinase-associatedExpand

Acute renal failure after endovascular vs open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
OBJECTIVE Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is an increasingly used alternative to open surgical repair of unruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The effect of EVAR on postprocedure acuteExpand

NADPH oxidase p22phox and catalase gene variants are associated with biomarkers of oxidative stress and adverse outcomes in acute renal failure.
Reactive oxygen species are important mediators of injury in acute renal failure (ARF). Although polymorphisms that affect key pro- and antioxidant enzymes might alter the susceptibility to oxidativeExpand
