  • Donors after cardiac death (DCD) have recently become an important source of renal transplants to alleviate the shortage of renal grafts in kidney transplantation (KTx), although DCD kidneys often have complications associated with a delayed graft function (DGF). A microarray-based approach using renal biopsy samples obtained at 1 h after KTx from DCD identified the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP-1) gene as a potential predictive marker for DGF. The current study measured serum… CONTINUE READING
