Objectives: Previously, in an animal study we showed that N-acetylcysteine (NAC) could decrease deoxycholate amphotericin B (DAmB) induced renal tubular apoptosis. In this clinical study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy of NAC in preventing acute kidney injury (AKI) in febrile neutropenic patients with invasive pulmonary aspergillosis treated with DAmB.
