    Although T-cell mediated rejection has remained the most common form of acute rejection, humoral rejection now accounts for a substantial fraction in patients with kidney or heart allografts, and probably causes the majority of acute graft losses. The frequency, variously estimated at 20-30%, is...

    Immunopathology techniques are useful and sometimes indispensable tools to diagnose and/or define pathogenesis of disease processes in an organ allograft. Using immunostaining and/or in situ hybridization, cells and molecules can be identified and localized in organ grafts. Considered in this...
