Serum soluble urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) has been put forth as the a candidate for the elusive “FSGS” factor that may lead to aggressive and early recurrence post-transplant. This study of patients with recurrent FSGS post-transplant found higher suPAR levels in patients with more extensive podocyte damage on renal biopsy. However, this study is […]

CMV infection post-transplant is responsible for direct end-organ disease but may also contribute to other infections through its immunomodulatory properties. Previous studies do not show a consistent link between CMV and recurrence of hepatitis C post-liver transplant. In this retrospective study, CMV infection was associated with an increased fibrosis and inflammation scores. This was regardless […]

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type II, or dense deposit disease, is a rare type of renal disease caused by excessive complement deposition in the kidney. It is also associated with a high rate of recurrence post-transplant. In this case report, a patient developed recurrent dense deposit disease shortly after transplant. Despite aggressive treatment, renal function worsened and […]
