Background Vancomycin is used for the treatment of resistant staphylococcal and enterococcal infections but is associated with nephrotoxicity. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) was recently identified as a sensitive biomarker for acute kidney injury. Here, we aimed to investigate the usefulness of serum NGAL in monitoring patients undergoing vancomycin therapy. Methods A total of 253 NGAL tests from 59 patients undergoing vancomycin therapy were evaluated. Patients with trough… CONTINUE READING
