In premature infants, many factors influence the function of renal tubules, such as asphyxia, respiratory disorders, use of high-concentration oxygen, hypotension, and drug administration. When tubular ischemia and oxidative stress develop due to renal microcirculatory pathology, urinary L-type fatty acid-binding protein levels (L-FABP) increase. We measured urinary L-FABP levels over ...
