Abstract

Background: Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipocalin (NGAL) protein is easily detected in the blood and urine soon after acute renal injury NGAL gains features of an early, sensitive and noninvasive biomarker for acute renal injury Recent evidences suggest that its expression is also increased in CRF reflecting the severity of disease.
