Abstract

We identified several studies that collectively strongly support the use of NGAL as a biomarker for the prediction of AKI. However, we noted some limitations, including lack of published studies that adhere to diagnostic study guidelines, heterogeneity in AKI definition, the lack of uniformly applicable cut-off values and variability in the performance of commercially available NGAL assays.
