Reference limits of the urinary gamma-glutamyltransferase in a healthy population and effects of short-term storage on the enzyme activity.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is present mainly in proximal renal tubule, and urinary GGT is an indicator of tubular damage since it may show renal changes before they are identified by using conventional measurements. Therefore, it is of interest to establish the reference limits of urinary GGT for a healthy population, as well as to… (More)
