Heme oxygenase 1 gene polymorphisms and outcome of renal transplantation.

Abstract

Heme oxygenase isoenzyme HO-1 has been linked to several cytoprotective functions with a potentially beneficial role in transplantation. In the present study, the effect of genetic variation in HO-1 on renal allograft outcome was investigated. Six hundred and eighty patients subject to renal transplantation in a single transplant unit and their cadaveric… (More)
