Urinary HLA-DR and CD54 expression—indicators for inflammatory activity in decoy cell shedding patients
Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation
Background. Polyomavirus (PV) nephropathy may coexist with or follow acute renal transplant rejection. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether HLA-DR and CD54 are useful cellular markers for surveillance of acute rejection in PV-infected patients. Methods. A prospective study was conducted using 205 renal transplant patients. Urine samples were collected at a regular interval post-transplantation for routine cytology and immunocytochemistry.
