Because URO exhibits an important role in sodium and water homeostasis (1, 6) and also has beneficial effects as a drug in different clinical indications (17,19), quantitative analysis of the peptide concentration as a tool for physiological characterization as well as for pharmacokinetic analysis is mandatory.
In the clinical specimens, we found a close correlation between the URO:creatinine ratio and natriuresis, which also supports the important physiological role of URO in sodium and water homeostasis and gives additional evidence for the plausibility of the assay results.
