The NGAL- test has hiherto primarily been connected with measurement of AKI. This will probably remain the most important area of use, but other areas – such as a marker for anemia are emerging

 

In a recent study a group of American doctors they investigated the relationship between NGAL-levels and anemia. The results are described in the following article.

Apart from showing  the NGAL-levels are good indicators for measuring anemia – the study is also interesting for other reasons:

A: The measurements are done with Bioporto’s test (ELISA I assume) and

B:  The study  is sponsored by Roche Diagnostics….

 

About Stengaard

BioPorto investor from way back when... I've invested in BioPorto ever since they made their debut on the danish stock exchange, it been a looooong journey with many obstacles. But well worth it all if Bioporto maintains their patent after the proceedings in 2014, and enters into agreements with Global Distributors in 2012 and 2013 If not, then it'll take another xx.years :)
