SA16 - Precision Diagnostics in AMR: What Clinicians Need to Know About


Feb 16, 2013 5:30pm ‐ Feb 16, 2013 5:50pm

Description

Reviewing current diagnostic criteria for antibody-mediated rejection reveals that these are consensus based and empirically developed and thus potentially significantly inaccurate. Recent insights into molecular mechanisms of antibody-mediated rejection have the potential to lead to better, more precise diagnostic tools which are the prerequisite for validating and establishing improved treatments. Thus the most important thing in antibody-mediated rejection is complete understanding of the disease process.

What You'll Take Away from His Talk:

  • Understand the limitations in current diagnostic criteria for antibody-mediated rejection.
  • Appreciate the different options with potential for improving precision in diagnosing AMR.
