BACKGROUND In addition to Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA) compatibility, gene polymorphism in cytokines might be important in the quality of allogeneic immune response. OBJECTIVES In this study HLA-DR matching and a number of cytokine gene polymorphisms have been evaluated in occurrence of acute rejection after living-unrelated donor (LURD) kidney transplantation. METHODS A total of 42 renal transplants that were performed at Hashemi Nejad Kidney Hospital (Tehran/Iran) and then followed up… CONTINUE READING
