Topic Discussion: Pseudo AKI with anti cancer agents

Legend: AKI, acute kidney injury, MATE, multidrug and toxic compound extrusion; OAT, organic anion transporter; OCT, organic cation transporter

As of April 2024--most updated data on anti-cancer agents and Pseudo-AKI.

Several classes of cancer treatments are associated with pseudo-AKI.  Providers must be aware of this phenomenon, as pseudo-AKI can lead to temporary stopping and even permanent discontinuation of life-saving treatments. When patients present with increases in serum creatinine while on these drugs, checking a serum cystatin C level may help differentiate true AKI from pseudo-AKI.
