Regulatory Foxp3-expressing T cells (Tregs), IL-10-producing B cells (Bregs), and IDO-expressing dendritic cells (DCregs) downregulate inflammatory processes and induces peripheral tolerance. These subpopulations also might participate in maintaining allograft immunological quiescence in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) with an excellent long-term graft(More)
AIM To evaluate the performance of urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL), kidney injury molecule, interleukin-18 and heat shock protein 72 for differential diagnosis between causes of acute kidney injury in kidney transplant recipients, especially immunological rejection. PATIENTS AND METHODS We measured these biomarkers in 67 kidney(More)
OBJECTIVE Establish the prognostic value for graft loss of urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL), kidney injury molecule-1 (uKIM-1), interleukin-18 (uIL-18), and heat shock protein 72 (uHsp72) in kidney transplant recipients (KTR) with acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS Biomarkers were measured in 67 KTR with AKI caused by different(More)
