Acute cellular rejection is typically diagnosed by histopathologic examination of transbronchial lung biopsies.  Pathologic grading of acute rejection has been standardized, however interobserver variability for the grading has not been adequately determined. A blinded panel of pathologists regraded 1566 biopsies from 845 lung transplant recipients enrolled in the Lung Allograft Rejection Gene Expression Observational study.  […]
