Abstract

Kidneys recovered from deceased African American donors with two APOL1 nephropathy risk variants are at increased risk of renal allograft failure after transplantation, say researchers. A single-centre study published in 2011 showed that kidneys coming from African American donors harbouring two APOL1 nephropathy risk variants failed more quickly after… (More)
