Albumin as a marker of AKI

zager.jpgOur second installment in the 2011 podcast series discusses the recently published article by Zager et al on renal cortical albumin gene induction and urinary albumin excretion in responses to AKI. Listen as our Editor in Chief Thomas Kleyman engages lead author Richard Zager (University of Washington, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center) in a dynamic discussion of this significant work. We also have an excellent companion editorial focus by Subhashini Bolisetty and Anupam Agarwal that highlights this important article.
