The Banff consensus, originally developed as a histopathological guideline to diagnoses in transplanted kidneys, has been adopted by other transplanted organs. Pancreas transplant specialists developed and implemented their first set of guidelines in 2008 with much of the detail pertaining to T-cell-mediated rejection. This latest set of guidelines now addresses the criteria proposed for the diagnosis of antibody-mediated rejection, which is emerging in pancreas transplantation as a well-recognized problem affecting graft survival.
