Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) is a cytokine secreted by macrophages, helper T cells, natural killer cells, B lymphocytes and non lymphoid cells e.g. endothelial cells, fibroblast and tumor cell lines. Aim of the study was to find the utility of TNF alpha in diagnosing renal transplant rejection among the renal transplant cases (n=29), and comparison with the levels in patients on maintenance hemodialysis (n=21) and healthy controls (n=20). TNF alpha in healthy controls varied from 2… CONTINUE READING
