BACKGROUND Natural killer (NK) cells have the capacity to recognize and respond to alloantigen, yet their role in lung transplant rejection is not well defined. The aim of this study was to correlate NK cell numbers and immunophenotype in peripheral blood and tissue with graft function after lung transplantation. METHODS NK cell subsets were immunophenotyped in peripheral blood (n = 41). Lung tissue was stained for NK cells via CD16 and morphologic assessment (n = 30). RESULTS Peripheral… CONTINUE READING
