Early up-regulation of macrophages and myofibroblasts: a new marker for development of chronic renal allograft rejection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Increased numbers of macrophages and myofibroblasts are observed to occur in chronic renal allograft rejection (CR). The aim of this study was to examine the expression of cellular markers for the macrophage and myofibroblast in early renal transplant biopsy specimens and correlate these findings with allograft outcome. METHODS The first… (More)
