There has been considerable recent research into the development of novel renal biomarkers to accelerate and refine the diagnosis of AKI. However, less is known on how these markers relate to chronic renal outcomes after AKI. Plasma NGAL concentrations at AKI diagnosis do correlate with degree of renal recovery  and prediction of renal recovery may be refined by combining markers and clinical risk factors . This suggests that those measures that correlate with renal tubular injury may provide an early prognosis for renal recovery after critical illness.
