Özet

Urine Neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (uNGAL) is a novel protein expressed in injured epithelia. The aim of our study was to assess whether uNGAL could represent a novel biomarker of renal scarring and to determine the optimal cut-off level for uNGAL to predict the presence of renal scars in children.
