Every year about 13 million people suffer from acute kidney injury of which about 4 million die. Despite this, progress in diagnosing kidney injury has been stagnant the past 60 years. The current methods provide the first signal of kidney failure one to three days after the kidney has been damaged. NGAL on the other hand, can detect instantaneous damage, thus giving the physician an opportunity to make crucial decisions before kidney damage evolves into a potentially fatal kidney failure. Furthermore, cost-benefit analyses show that NGAL measurements will contribute towards cost-savings for hospitals when managing kidney injury-patients.
