abstract

  • Septal capillary injury accompanied by direct and indirect immunofluorescent evidence of humoral immunity is a frequent finding on transbronchial biopsies. The findings suggest that humoral immunity to endothelial-based alloantigen is a common occurrence in lung grafts and may be a critical factor in chronic graft dysfunction.
