Title Biological Markers of Recovery for the Kidney (BioMaRK)
Summary Investigate the role of inflammation, as well as other factors in recovery from acute renal failure (ARF). This project, called Biological Markers of Recovery for the Kidney, or BioMaRK, will examine how such factors influence survival as well as recovery of kidney function. The study will assess how certain inflammation markers relate to clinical outcomes and build a risk-prediction model based on clinical variables and those biomarkers. The results of this study could potentially lay the foundation for the development of ARF treatment therapies, particularly those designed to enhance organ recovery.
