Plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin clearance during venovenous hemodiafiltration

Abstract

To the Editor Plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) levels are predictors of acute kidney injury (AKI) severity [1, 2]. NGAL may also limit kidney injury [3]. Hemodiafiltration (HDF) may affect plasma NGAL levels because NGAL is probably filtered and absorbed by the filter membrane. We investigated the effect of HDF on plasma NGAL levels… (More)
