Tolerance by Engaging Antigen During Cellular Homeostasis

Anti-rejection medicines, also known as immunosuppressive drugs, are prescribed to organ transplant recipients to prevent rejection of the new organ. Long-term use of these medicines place...

A Retrospective Review - Anti-HLA Antibodies

Transplant rejection following organ transplant occurs because the recipient's immune system attacks the transplanted organ. The recipients immune system recognizes the transplanted organ ...

Immune Tolerance and Alloreactivity in Liver Transplant Recipients on Different Monotherapy Immunosuppressive Agents

This study is being done with the purpose of trying to understand if and why transplant recipients may develop tolerance to their transplanted organ. Tolerance means being able to lower or...

A Cohort Study of Operationally Tolerant Allograft Recipients

Antirejection medicines, also known as immunosuppressive drugs, are prescribed to organ transplant recipients to prevent their bodies from rejecting the new organ. Some organ transplant re...

Steroid Withdrawal in Pediatric Kidney Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of withdrawing steroids on graft rejection and kidney functions in kidney transplant recipients. Graft survival has improved in recent ...

Heparan sulfate is a plasma biomarker of acute cellular allograft rejection.

Despite advances in management of immunosuppression, graft rejection remains a significant clinical problem in solid organ transplantation. Non-invasive biomarkers of graft rejection can facilitate ea...

Graft rejection after immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy in solid organ transplant recipients.

Racial Disparity in Kidney Transplant Survival Relates to Late Rejection and is Independent of Steroid Withdrawal.

Black kidney transplant recipients have more acute rejection (AR) and inferior graft survival. We sought to determine whether early steroid withdrawal (ESW) had an impact on AR and death-censored graf...

A Multi-Center Case-Control Study of the Effect of Acute Rejection and Cytomegalovirus Infection on Pneumocystis Pneumonia (PCP) in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients.

Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) is associated with morbidity and mortality in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. In this case-control study, we determined the association between post-transplant PC...

Antibody-Mediated rejection after liver transplantation - relevance of C1q and C3d-Binding antibodies.

The aim of our study was to evaluate the relevance of complement-binding donor-specific antibodies (DSA) for prediction of antibody-mediated rejection after liver transplantation. Sera from 123 liver ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.

An immune response with both cellular and humoral components, directed against an allogeneic transplant, whose tissue antigens are not compatible with those of the recipient.

A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.

Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
