Circulating cytokine portraits can differentiate between allograft rejection and pulmonary infection in cardiac transplant rats.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Cardiac rejection and infection are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality after transplant representing with similar non-specific symptoms. Early discrimination is crucial yet challenging. We proposed that aberrant serum cytokine portraits exist in pulmonary infection and allograft rejection, and such profiles might aid in timely… (More)
