Urinary calprotectin and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) have recently been identified as promising biomarkers for the differentiation of prerenal and intrinsic acute kidney injury (AKI) in adults. In the study reported here we examined the diagnostic accuracy of calprotectin, NGAL, and kidney injury molecule 1 (KIM-1) in pediatric(More)
BACKGROUND The G1 cell cycle inhibitors tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 7 (IGFBP7) have been identified as promising biomarkers for the prediction of adverse outcomes including renal replacement therapy (RRT) and mortality in critically ill adult patients who develop acute kidney injury (AKI).(More)
OBJECTIVE Somatoform disorders are characterized by patterns of persistent bodily complaints. Organic illness attributions are assumed to represent a central supporting factor in the development and maintenance of somatoform disorders. Using group control design, we aimed to investigate the processing of illness-belief-related word stimuli in somatoform(More)
Early identification of patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) being at high risk for adverse outcome can influence medical treatment. This study compares urinary calprotectin, kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1), and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) for their performance in predicting mortality and need for renal replacement therapy (RRT) in(More)
This study investigated the clinical usefulness of screening for cystic fibrosis (CF) in 19,992 newborns, over 39 months, in an Austrian population. Immunoreactive serum trypsin (IRT) determination was followed by sweat chloride analysis (sweat test) to establish diagnosis. In a retrospective analysis covering 6 months of the study period, individuals who(More)
