Urinary NGAL Ratio Is Not a Sensitive Biomarker for Monitoring Acute Tubular Injury in Kidney Transplant Patients: NGAL and ATI in Renal Transplant Patients

Figure 1

Urinary NGAL/creatinine ratios in transplanted patients versus other groups. Shown are the urinary NGAL/creatinine levels of the two control groups (healthy individuals with 2 ( ) or 1 kidney ( )) versus ICU patients with acute renal failure (ARF, 2 kidney ( )) and transplanted patients without ATI ( ). Patients with acute renal failure had significantly higher urinary NGAL levels compared to the other groups ( ).
