PURPOSE OF REVIEW Acute kidney injury (AKI) remarkably increases the mortality of critically ill patients treated in ICUs. Recently, several renal biomarkers have been developed for the early detection of AKI. We review the potential of urinary L-type fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) as a new renal biomarker for AKI diagnosis in critical care. RECENT FINDINGS In the kidney, L-FABP is expressed in renal proximal tubular epithelial cells and shed into urine rapidly in response to renal… CONTINUE READING
