Prospective studies. Prospective epidemiologic studies of acute renal failure (ARF) in large populations have not often been published . The first study reported by Eliahou and colleagues [4] was developed in Israel in the 1960s and included only Jewish patients. This summary of available data suggests a progressive increase in ARF incidence that at present seems to have stabilized around 200 cases per million population per year (pmp/y). No data about ARF incidence are available from undeveloped countries.
