Activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is associated with Acute Kidney Injury in COVID-19.


The pathophysiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) in COVID-19 patients is still poorly understood. SARS-CoV-2 has been suggested to modulate the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). In this series of COVID-19 critically ill patients, we report evidence of activation of the RAAS in COVID-19 patients with AKI.
