Human T and natural killer cells possess a functional renin-angiotensin system: further mechanisms of angiotensin II-induced inflammation.
The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) plays an important role in the regulation of inflammation and in the progression of chronic kidney disease. Accumulation of inflammatory cells into the renalExpand

The profile of cardiac patients with renal artery stenosis.
OBJECTIVES We examined the prevalence and severity of renal artery stenosis (RAS) in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization who were deemed at risk for RAS based on clinical or laboratoryExpand

Delayed graft function and the risk for death with a functioning graft.
Delayed graft function (DGF) associates with an increased risk for graft failure, but its link with death with graft function (DWGF) is unknown. We used the US Renal Data System to assemble a cohortExpand

Monocytes and peritubular capillary C4d deposition in acute renal allograft rejection.
BACKGROUND Peritubular capillary (PTC) deposition of complement split factor C4d in renal allografts has been shown to be closely associated with circulating antidonor antibodies and a marker forExpand

Adverse Outcomes of Tacrolimus Withdrawal in Immune-Quiescent Kidney Transplant Recipients.
Concerns about adverse effects of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) have prompted development of protocols that minimize their use. Whereas previous CNI withdrawal trials in heterogeneous cohorts showedExpand

Kidney paired donation: principles, protocols and programs.
Due to the ongoing shortage of deceased-donor organs, novel strategies to augment kidney transplantation rates through expanded living donation strategies have become essential. These includeExpand

Focal peritubular capillary C4d deposition in acute rejection.
BACKGROUND Diffuse peritubular capillary (PTC) C4d deposition has been shown to be associated with relatively poor graft outcome. The significance of focal PTC C4d staining in the earlyExpand

Better understanding of transplant glomerulopathy secondary to chronic antibody-mediated rejection.
Transplant glomerulopathy (TG) is generally accepted to result from repeated episodes of endothelial activation, injury and repair, leading to pathological abnormalities of double contouring orExpand

The Role of Donor‐Specific HLA Alloantibodies in Liver Transplantation
The impact of donor‐specific HLA alloantibodies (DSA) on short‐ and long‐term liver transplant outcome is not clearly defined. While it is clear that not all levels of allosensitization produce overtExpand
