The aim of work was to investigate whether serum and urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (sNGAL and uNGAL, respectively) are potential biomarkers of early cyclosporine A (CsA) nephrotoxicity in steroid-dependent nephrotic children (SDNS). The study group (I) consisted of 19 children with SDNS aged 9.46 ± 5.52 years treated with CsA. The children were examined four times: at proteinuria relapse, prior to CsA treatment, then after 3, 6, and 12 months of CsA treatment. The control… CONTINUE READING
