abstract

  • These data demonstrate that a rapid test of target gene up-regulation using real-time PCR can be used as an aid in the diagnosis of kidney allograft rejection. This is also the first report on the possible utility of HLA-DRA mRNA up-regulation as a marker for kidney transplant rejection.
