Although considered the gold standard, histologic examination of renal transplant biopsies, expert pathologists frequently disagree on their interpretation of the same sample. The authors of this paper have developed criteria for antibody-mediated rejection based on mRNA expression in biopsy samples detected by microarrays. In this study, they validate their previous findings in a cohort of […]

Acute Cellular and Antibody-Mediated Rejection of the Pancreas Allograft: Incidence, Risk Factors and Outcomes

Antibody-mediated pancreas transplant rejection is a relatively recently recognized entity. In this retrospective study, the rate of antibody-mediated rejection post-pancreas transplant was similar to that of acute cellular rejection. Class I DSA were more predictive of antibody-mediated rejection than class II DSA. Antibody-mediated rejection should be considered in all patients with pancreas graft dysfunction post-transplant.
