Early diagnosis of contrast mediainduced nephropathy in intensive care
At the Research Department in hospital of Nova Gorica we are faced with new cathlab practice and problems connected with it. Together with other project partners we intend to investigate contrast media induced nephropathy by measuring the release of NGAL, which is considered to be a good biomarker for detecting reduced kidney function. Our first priority is extensive study of NGAL and develop special detecting lab-on-a chip that should be small and simple to use at every day hospital practice. Our second priority is to develop new and intensify pre-existing collaborations and exchange of knowledge between project partners.
