A novel mouse model of acute antibody-mediated transplant rejection shows simultaneous complement activating and anti-inflammatory effects of donor specific IgG antibodiesDownload
We developed a small animal model of pure antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) by utilizing fully major histocompatibility complex (MHC) mismatched kidney allografts in mice. By examining resultant ABMR pathology, we show that terminal complement products C5a and C5b-9 are crucial in establishing...
The two types of rejection identified in the Banff histopathologic diagnosis are T cell-mediated rejection (TCMR) and antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR). TCMR is most common early post-transplant while ABMR is the main cause of late graft loss. Kidney transplant TCMR is diagnosed histologically...
Background: NK cells are a key cellular component of antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR), but their role in ABMR has not been identified. We postulated that NK cells are stimulated through their CD16a antibody receptors by donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies in ABMR. There is currently no direct...
T cell-mediated inflammation is stereotyped: mouse delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction and mouse T cell-mediated rejection of renal allografts share common molecular mechanismsT cell-mediated inflammation is stereotypedDownload
Genome-wide gene expression analysis of diseases has revealed large-scale changes in the expression of thousands of genes (transcripts) representing biological processes. The processes that occur during T cell-mediated rejection (TCMR) of renal allografts in mice and humans have been previously...
