You may need to give some of your urine for testing. A urine test will show if you have a urinary tract infection and if there are traces of blood in the urine. It is often part of routine check-ups or preparation for surgery. It is also used for regular follow-up if you have a kidney disease. Other names for this test are urine analysis and urinalysis.

Background: Glutathione S transferases GSTs are widely distributed enzymes found in highly varying amounts in tissues of the human body. The enzyme GST-pi in urine has been used as a marker of renal distal tubular cell damage. The present study was intended to evaluate urinary excretion of GST-pi and its relationship to other renal markers and to the status of oxidative stress in preterm neonates.

Methods: Levels of urinary GST-pi, N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase a marker of proximal tubular damage , albumin a marker of glomerular damage and 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine a marker of oxidative stress and serum creatinine were measured in preterm neonates at 1 and 4 weeks of age. Results: The results showed that urinary excretion of GST-pi is increased in preterm neonates compared with reported values for healthy adults. No significant relationship was detected between urinary GST-pi and other markers for renal function.

Urinary GST-pi showed significantly positive correlation with urinary 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine at 1 and 4 weeks. Sick neonates treated with supplemental oxygen and mechanical ventilation showed significantly higher levels of GST-pi as well as 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine than clinically stable neonates did at 4 weeks. Conclusions: These results indicate the potential effect of systemic oxidative stress on urinary excretion of GST-pi.

Further studies are necessary to explore the effect of oxidative conditions on expression of GST-pi in distal tubules in the human kidney. This site needs JavaScript to work properly.
