BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to study the clinical significance of joint detection of mALB and NAG in early kidney damage in burn patients.
METHODS: Forty-five burn patients of different degrees were selected and divided into mild, moderate, severe, and heavy burns, and normal healthy controls according to their severity. Their b2- macroglobulin (b2-MG), a1-macroglobulin (a1-MG), mALB and N-acetyl-b-D-NAG were tested for 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks after the burn, respectively.
RESULTS: The urine concentration change b2-MG, a1-MG, MALB, and NAG are related to the area, depth and degree of the burn. The more serious the burn is, the higher the levels of mALB and NAG (P<0.001 or P<0.01) is.
CONCLUSIONS: Early detection of mALB and NAG is helpful for early kidney damage diagnosis in burn patients to prevent further complications.
