BACKGROUND In the early post-transplant period, renal allograft rejection with diffuse peritubular capillary (PTC) C4d deposition predicts poor graft survival. In the late post-transplant setting, that is, one or more yr after transplantation, the implication of diffuse PTC C4d deposition is still a topic of debate. The purpose of our study was to see if diffuse PTC C4d deposition, in late acute rejection (LAR), occurring more than one yr post-transplant, has any impact on graft survival and… CONTINUE READING
