From the authors: “These findings provide a rationale for bench and translational studies using therapies that are already available, such as inhaled DNase or mitochondrial transplantation, to prevent lung injury and improve mortality due to [acute kidney injury].” 

This study is highlighted as one of April’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
