Perhaps one of the most intriguing concepts in modern medicine is the potential for personalized approaches to medical therapy. Currently, there are no biomarkers in clinical use that can predict, before transplantation, the occurrence of acute rejection. This Canadian group of researchers originating from the PROOF centre in British Columbia has identified a biomarker panel that can predict, at time of transplant, who will have acute rejection post heart transplant, to personalize immunosuppressive treatment.
