Resumen

DI CARLO, María Beatriz et al. Utility of urinary alkaline phosphatase as early marker of renal tubular failure. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2007, vol.41, n.3, pp. 369-377. ISSN 1851-6114.

The objective of this study was to determine the activity of urinary Alkaline Phosphatase (ALPur) to evaluate early tubular failure and its diagnostic usefulness. The patients studied were: 20 Controls (C), 11 with Hipertensión (HTA), 23 Diabetic (DBT) and 34 with renal Insufficiency of diverse origin (IRDO). The creatinine, creatinine clearence (kinetic Jaffé) serum and urinary ALP (kinetic DGKC), microalbuminuria (Immunoturbidimetric), proteiunuria (Turbidimetric), uroproteinogram, SDS-PAGE (12.5%) and ALP isoenzymes determinations were made. The results indicate that serum ALP was normal, without difference between groups, and no relation with the increase in ALPur. Recommended cut-off value of ALPur was 8 UI/L. ALPur was elevated in HTA and IRDO, and normal in DBT. Increases in ALPur in IRDO were related to the structural tubular injury, and those in HTA could be related to early tubular alteration. Determination of ALPur is proposed for early detection of tubular injury, before renal failure is established or when there is risk of developing it, establishing its usefulness in: - DBT and HTA patients: screening (together with microalbuminuria and creatinine clearence). - Hospitalized patients in risk of acute renal insufficiency: in order to orient treatments. - Patients with chronic renal insufficiency: as an indicator of injury and prognosis.
