Urinary calprotectin and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) have recently been identified as promising biomarkers for the differentiation of prerenal and intrinsic acute kidney injury (AKI) in adults. In the study reported here we examined the diagnostic accuracy of calprotectin, NGAL, and kidney injury molecule 1 (KIM-1) in pediatric… CONTINUE READING
