M.; Goor, Harry van; Navis, Gerjan; van den Born, Jacob; Hillebrands, Jan-Luuk // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p1 

    Background: Chronic transplant dysfunction explains the majority of late renal allograft loss and is accompanied by extensive tissue remodeling leading to transplant vasculopathy, glomerulosclerosis and interstitial fibrosis. Matrix proteoglycans mediate cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions...

    Background. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a risk factor for acute and chronic rejection of transplanted organs and is thought to mediate rejection indirectly. Methods. In this retrospective observational cohort study, early- and end-stage biopsies from renal allografts lost because of...

    Background: Five-year graft survival in the pediatric lung transplant (LTxp) population is less than 50%, with obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) the leading cause of death at 1, 3, and 5 years post-transplant. Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), defined using spirometry values, is the...
