BACKGROUND Acute rejection episodes and vascular complications are common after renal transplantation and have negative impact on the long-term patient and graft survival. We investigated whether the risks of acute rejection, thrombosis, infarction and graft loss could be predicted based on the presence of functional polymorphisms in the genes of the coagulation and endothelial inflammation cascade. METHODS The study consisted of 772 consecutive cadaver kidney transplantations from a single… CONTINUE READING
