Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the relationship between kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) in urine and acute physiology and chronic health evaluation II (APACHEII) score, and the prognosis in the patients suffered from sepsis.

METHODS:

In the perspective study, 56 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) from March 2010 to September 2011 suffered from sepsis were enrolled and treated according to the early goal-directed therapy (EGDT). The patients were divided into two groups according to the perform in EGDT or not within 6 hours (groupI, group II). Monitoring included APACHEII score, KIM-1, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine (Cr) at before resuscitation (T0), 6 hours after resuscitation (T6 h), and 1 day (T1 d), 2 days (T2 d), 3 days (T3 d), 4 days (T4 d) and 5 days (T5 d) after ICU admission. According to the 28-day prognosis, all the patients were divided into survival group or death group.

RESULTS:

The value of APACHEII score, urine KIM-1, BUN and Cr in groupI(n=30), decreased after fluid resuscitation and decreased to the lowest at T5 d. The value of APACHEII score, urine KIM-1, BUN and Cr in groupII(n=26), increased after failure of fluid resuscitation and increased to the highest at T5 d. The value of APACHEII score at T2 d and urine KIM-1 at T1 d in groupII were significantly higher than those in groupI (APACHEII score: 26.35±6.18 vs. 13.25±4.72, urine KIM-1: 4.721±1.432 μg/L vs. 0.909±0.325 μg/L, both P<0.05). The mortality in groupI was significantly lower than that in group II [10.0% (3/30) vs. 73.1% (19/26), P<0.05]. The value of APACHEII score, urine KIM-1, BUN and Cr in survival group (n=34) decreased with the clinical condition improved and decreased to the lowest at T5 d, while the value of APACHEII score, urine KIM-1, BUN and Cr in death group (n=22) increased and increased to the highest at T5 d. The value of APACHEII score at T1 d, and urine KIM-1 at T6 d in death group were significantly higher than those in survival group (APACHEII score:26.39±8.95 vs. 14.27±5.11, urine KIM-1:3.134±1.117 μg/L vs. 1.447±0.472 μg/L, both P<0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

KIM-1 in urine could be a good index for evaluation of sepsis, and it is helpful to understand the disease development by continuous surveillance. It is very important for the appraisal of prognosis, development and prognosis in sepsis, combined with APACHEII score.
