Highly sensitized renal transplant candidates present a group at high risk for acute and chronic rejection. The probability of finding compatible donors for these recipients is significantly lower in comparison to those who have low PRA values. As a consequence, these patients spend longer time on the waiting list and become tethered to dialysis. The(More)
The specificity of alloantibodies (alloAb) and their clinical significance in association with T-/B+ flow cytometry crossmatch (FCXM) in kidney transplantation are not clearly defined. This study was undertaken to examine the HLA specificity and clinical relevance of Ab causing B+ FCXM in pre-transplant (final XM) recipients' serum samples. Final FCXM serum(More)
Over recent years, research into Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has increased substantially. However, if autonomous flight of these vehicles is to become feasible in the near future, a collision avoidance scheme must be developed to ensure airspace safety. In this paper, we propose a novel artificial potential field approach to this problem, which,(More)
Stem cell transplantation (SCT) is the treatment of choice for a number of malignant and nonmalignant diseases. Monitoring of SC engraftment or microchimerism (MC) is important for diagnosis of relapse, rejection or graft vs. host disease (GVHD). The goal of this study was to develop a sensitive and relatively simple method for MC lineage analysis using the(More)
