In TV, allograft arteries characteristically develop severe, diffuse intimal hyperplastic lesions that eventually compromise luminal flow and cause ischemic graft failure. Traditional immunosuppressive strategies that check acute allograft rejection do not prevent TV; indeed 50% of… CONTINUE READING
