- The Efficacy of the Triage Neutraphil-Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) Test as an Aid in the Diagnosis of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in an All-comers ICU Setting. [ Time Frame: Prior to or within 72 hours. ]The efficacy of the Triage Neutraphil-Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) Test as an aid in the diagnosis of acute kidney injury (AKI) in an all-comers ICU setting. Final AKI diagnoses were established by an adjudication committee.

|Primary Completion Date:||April 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The study will be conducted in two phases. Phase One is specimen acquisition and subject diagnosis adjudication. Phase Two is biomarker testing.
Approximately 850 adults admitted to general ICUs will be enrolled within 12 hours of receipt of ICU admission orders. Study specific whole blood and urine specimens will be collected.
There is an Adjudication Committee for this study. This committee is comprised of qualified, board-certified nephrologists.
During Phase Two, the plasma specimens will be divided amongst three clinical sites representative of the intended end users of this assay, and tested under a separate testing protocol.
