Diagnostic Method and Biomarker for Detecting Renal Insuficiency

Developed by: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón


The invention is a diagnostic method and a biomarker for the detection of renal insufficiency (acute as well as chronic renal failure). The rationale of the invention is that the decrease in renal functions is accompanied by a significant increase in urinary PTHrP excretion.


The diagnostic method has a clinical application. The conditions diagnosed with this biomarker are both acute as well as chronic renal insufficiency including secondary chronic renal insufficiency due to diabetic nephropathy, glomerulonephritis or nephrosclerosis.
