Identification of Subclinical Acute Interstitial Nephritis
Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) is a common condition characterized by minimal clinical features and slowly worsening kidney function. As a result, by the time AIN is diagnosed, permanent kidney damage has already occurred. Early recognition of AIN could prevent the occurrence of permanent kidney damage. To identify patients with AIN in a timely manner, we will set up screening algorithms in the electronic health record. We will then evaluate patients identified through this algorithm with novel biomarkers.
Funding for this project comes, in part, from the following grant:
“George M. O'Brien Kidney Center at Yale”
