Acute kidney injury is an important cause of mortality in very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) preterm infants. As in the general population, the detection of renal damage cannot rely on the measurement of serum creatinine, since it has been demonstrated to be a weak predictor and a delayed indicator of kidney function deterioration. However, several candidate biomarkers have failed to prove sufficient specificity and sensitivity for a routine clinical use because of the poor awareness of their biological role. This study was aimed to investigate the impact of different maternal and neonatal conditions on several renal biomarkers in VLBW preterm infants during the first week of life.

Abstract

Acute kidney injury is an important cause of mortality in very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) preterm infants. As in the general population, the detection of renal damage cannot rely on the measurement of serum creatinine, since it has been demonstrated to be a weak predictor and a delayed indicator of kidney function deterioration. However, several candidate biomarkers have failed to prove sufficient specificity and sensitivity for a routine clinical use because of the poor awareness of their biological role. This study was aimed to investigate the impact of different maternal and neonatal conditions on several renal biomarkers in VLBW preterm infants during the first week of life.
