INTRODUCTION Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a novel biomarker used in acute kidney injury (AKI) diagnostics. Studies on burn patients have highlighted it as a promising biomarker for early detection of AKI. This study was designed to discover whether plasma NGAL is as a biomarker superior to serum creatinine and cystatin C in detecting AKI in severely burned patients. METHODS Nineteen subjects were enrolled from March 2013 to September 2014 in the Helsinki Burn Centre… CONTINUE READING
