Fibrinogen: A New Kid on the Block of Translational Biomarkers for Kidney Damage

Presenter: Vishal S. Vaidya

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a serious public health concern, especially due to the lack of early biomarkers of injury. We provide evidence that fibrinogen may function as a key molecular link between tubulo-vascular damage and regeneration in the kidney and provides new opportunities for its use in the diagnosis and prevention of kidney disease.
