Renal biomarkers for assessment of kidney function in renal transplant recipients: how do they compare
International Urology and Nephrology, 05/31/2012
Abouchacra S et al. – It appears that in renal transplant recipients neutrophil gelatinase–associated lipocalin (NGAL) correlates well with cystatin C and eGFR, most strongly with cystatin–based formula. Though this suggests potential use of NGAL as a screening test, its weaker diagnostic performance raises some concern about its clinical usefulness.
