Recent research highlighted the potential role of circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA), resulted by apoptosis or cell necrosis, as a prognostic marker in the setting of different clinical conditions. Cardiorenal syndrome type 1 (CRS type 1) is characterized by a rapid worsening of cardiac function leading to acute kidney injury (AKI). Apoptosis of renal epithelial cells is proposed as a mechanism involved in CRS type 1. In this study, we investigated cfDNA levels in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) and CRS type 1 and the possible correlation between cfDNA levels and inflammatory and apoptotic parameters.

Abstract

Recent research highlighted the potential role of circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA), resulted by apoptosis or cell necrosis, as a prognostic marker in the setting of different clinical conditions. Cardiorenal syndrome type 1 (CRS type 1) is characterized by a rapid worsening of cardiac function leading to acute kidney injury (AKI). Apoptosis of renal epithelial cells is proposed as a mechanism involved in CRS type 1. In this study, we investigated cfDNA levels in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) and CRS type 1 and the possible correlation between cfDNA levels and inflammatory and apoptotic parameters.
