KIM-1 is a type I trans-membrane structural glycoprotein located in the renal proximal tubule epithelial cells.  These cells undergo regeneration after various forms of injury and shed KIM-1 antigen into the urine.  Thus, urinary KIM-1 is an early and specific biomarker for tubular kidney injury.  KIM-1 has become widely recognized by many organizations and agencies, including the FDA, as an excellent biomarker in pre-clinical studies to monitor acute kidney tubular toxicity by identifying adverse reactive drugs and therapeutic agents in drug development.

Kidney injury caused by therapeutic agents and drug induction is a common type of injury requiring appropriate monitoring and intervention.  Current standards using blood urea nitrogen and creatinine are considered late indicators of kidney injury and are often non-specific.  KIM-1 has been shown continually to outperform traditional biomarkers of kidney injury in preclinical biomarker studies. The detection of KIM-1 can occur in as little as six hours post injection of an agent known to cause kidney injury.

The Human Rena ELISA Kit is a quantitative test for the detection of KIM-1 in human urine samples.
