In a study of patients with intracerebral hemorrhage, those with baseline creatinine levels of 110 µmol/L or higher and who received higher doses of nicardipine, a hypertensive drug, had an increased risk for acute kidney injury.

Patients who experienced acute kidney injury during hospitalization for COVID-19, compared with those who did not, had greater proteinuria and ɑ1-microglobulin excretion at admission, a study found.
Patients hospitalized with COVID-19 who have preexisting kidney conditions are more susceptible to renal complications, a new systematic review and meta-analysis suggest.
