In this investigation ions in serum, urine and kidney of Wistar rats (control group) and Wistar with Acute Renal Insufficiency
(ARI) were quantified using instrumental neutron activation analysis. The measurements in serum and urine were performed before,
during and after ischemia-induced ARI. The measurements in kidney were performed for the control and ARI groups. Also, a comparative
analysis between the concentration ratios before, during and after ARI was performed in urine and serum samples for both groups.
The variations results for Cu in serum and I in urine, before and after ischemia-induced ARI, suggest that these elements
must be also investigated in renal dysfunction.
