Abstract: For improved early detection and assessment of severe acute kidney damage following accidental or intentional ingestion of the herbicide MCPA, we compared a panel of 14 novel kidney injury biomarkers with plasma creatinine. Male Wistar rats received four different oral doses of MCPA and plasma and urine biomarker levels were measured at 8, 24 and 48. h after MCPA exposure. Diagnostic performances using absolute levels, urine levels normalized to urine creatinine or urinary excretion rate were determined by ROC analysis. Plasma creatinine remained the best early biomarker for predicting histological changes at 48. h. The performance of plasma cystatin C in mirroring kidney function was similar to that of plasma creatinine. While urine concentrations were generally less predictive, normalization by urine creatinine greatly improved the performance of several biomarkers. This may be due to an apparent amplification of the biomarker signal on normalizing to creatinine, in the presence of a declining glomerular filtration rate prior to reaching steady state. Normalized 8. h osteopontin and albumin concentrations outperformed other normalized biomarkers in predicting histological changes at later times. Normalized urinary kidney injury molecule-1 at 48. h also correlated well with the degree of kidney damage. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
