Inventors: Kai Singbartl; John A. Kellum Jr.

Patent Number: 13/235,005


This invention is related to the field of the prevention and treatment of kidney disease. The treatment of kidney disease may be tailored depending upon the need for, or expectation of, long-term dialysis. For example, prediction of long-term dialysis treatment can be determined by monitoring urine biomarkers related to the development of chronic kidney disease. For example, a normalized time course of approximately fourteen Days measuring hyaluronic acid, death receptor 5, and/or transforming growth factor β1 can be used to establish the risk of recovery versus non-recovery in patient’s having suffered an acute kidney injury.
