This is a multi-center clinical study designed to assess the performance of the Triage NGAL test as an aid in the early risk assessment for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). Approximately 260 adults at risk for CIN undergoing intra-arterial angiography involving administration of iodinated contrast agent(s) will be enrolled.

Official Title: Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipcalin(NGAL): A Novel Blood Marker for Determining the Risk of Developing Contrast-Induced Nephopathy

Further study details as provided by Biosite:

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Blood sample taken at 8 timepoints over 2 days.

Estimated Enrollment: 260
Study Start Date: March 2008
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: June 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

EDTA anti-coagulated blood samples will be drawn at eight different time points from within 1 hour prior to first contrast administration through 48 hours. These blood samples will be processed to plasma at the clinical site, frozen and shipped to Biosite for storage and testing of Triage NGAL and serum creatinine. The results of these assessments will be blinded to the medical team during the study and will not impact the medical management of the subject.

Any additional serum creatinine measurements obtained by the medical team as part of routine care as well as need for dialysis, hospitalization, major adverse cardiovascular events and mortality will be recorded through Day 30.
