We have abrogated acute T-cell rejections using Ahmedabad Tolerance Induction Protocol (ATIP) with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) under non-myeloablative conditioning pre-transplant. However B-cell mediated rejections and CRAD continue(More)

It can provide diagnostic precision and prognostic value and guide in therapeutic options for many renal diseases.

INTRODUCTION Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated glomerulonephritis (GN) is characterized by necrotizing and crescentic GN with paucity of immunoglobulin (Ig) and complement deposition, which is also known as pauci-immune crescentic GN. Membranous nephropathy (MN) is characterized by the formation of subepithelial immune deposit with(More)
BACKGROUND Pemphigus vulgaris (PV), an autoimmune disorder characterized by blistering skin/mucus membrane lesions, is mediated by desmoglein-3 autoantibodies. We carried out a prospective clinical trial of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in thymus, bone marrow (BM) and periphery to reconstitute central and peripheral arms of self-tolerance.(More)
