Abstract

Background/aim: Chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is one of the most important health problems worldwide, could be considered as an immune inflammatory disease. A prognostic biomarker may be helpful in determining the progression of CKD in children. We aimed to investigate the serum vasohibin-1 and soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2) levels as potential biomarkers in children with predialysis CKD.
