The gold standard fro diagnosing acute rejection remains biopsy. A non-invasive test that could reliably diagnose rejection would be an important step forward. In this study, a set of three different RNA molecules in the urine of renal transplant recipients showed a high degree of sensitivity for acute cellular rejection, and distinguished it from antibody-mediated […]

Many centers have now adopted hsTnT as a serum biomarker. This study found a serum hsTNT concentration of 33.55 ng/l 6 weeks after transplantation was found to be the best cutoff to predict death at 1 year (HR 0.16, 95%CI:0.05–0.46, P = 0.001) with a sensitivity of 90.91% and a specificity of 70.97%. In addition, […]

Hypoalbuminemia is frequently associated with morbidity and mortality in illness and aging patients. This study used Cox proportional hazard models to examine associations between serum albumin and rate of death after lung transplantation in 6808 adult patients with interstitial lung disease, COPD, or cystic fibrosis. Hypoalbuminemia was independently associated with increased risk of death in […]
