Detection of anti-vascular endothelial cell antibodies with microcytotoxicity testing.


Antivascular endothelial cell antibodies (anti-VEC) were detected in 20 out of 20 serum samples from post renal transplant nephrectomy patients using a microcytotoxicity (MET) test, but in only 1 of 100 healthy blood donors. Cytotoxicity to VEC could occur in the absence of lymphocytotoxic antibodies. In this paper factors influencing the specificity and… (More)
