Each year, there are some 13.3 million new cases of acute kidney injury (AKI), a serious affliction. Formerly known as acute renal failure, the ailment produces a rapid buildup of nitrogenous wastes and decreases urine output, usually within hours or days of disease onset. Severe complications often ensue. Currently, there is no known cure for AKI.Acute kidney injury is responsible for 1.7 million deaths worldwide annually. Protecting healthy kidneys from harm and treating those already injured remains a significant challenge for modern medicine.
