Extracellular vesicles (EVs) present in the urine are mainly released from cells of the nephron and can therefore provide information on kidney function. We here evaluated the presence of vesicles expressing the progenitor marker CD133 in the urine of normal subjects and of patients undergoing renal transplant. We found that EV expressing CD133 were present(More)
BACKGROUND The C1q-binding properties of donor specific antibodies (DSA) may be related to antibody-mediated rejection and poor outcome. METHODS We retrospectively studied 35 kidney transplant recipients with transplant glomerulopathy (TG) and de novo DSA (dnDSA). C1q dnDSA were measured in the serum stored at renal biopsy and the association among(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate whether asymptomatic recurrent (≥2) antibody-mediated rejection (pAMR 1+), defined as diffuse capillary C4d immunostaining (rAMR) on endomyocardial biopsies (EMBs), during the first year after heart transplantation impairs left ventricular (LV) function. METHODS Fifty-four consecutive heart transplant(More)
