  • PURPOSE Renal scarring is a serious complication that often occurs with chronic pyelonephritis in the presence of vesicoureteral reflux. In a previous study we established a rat model of renal scarring in which we found the up-regulation of neutrophil-gelatinase associated lipocalin at the mRNA and protein levels. In this study we evaluated urinary neutrophil-gelatinase associated lipocalin as a potential biomarker for progression of renal scarring in patients with vesicoureteral reflux… CONTINUE READING
