  • Protocol biopsies in renal transplantation: research tool or clinically useful? CURRENT OPINION IN NEPHROLOGY AND HYPERTENSION Rush, D. N., Nickerson, P., Jeffery, J. R., McKenna, R. M., Grimm, P. C., Gough, J. 1998; 7 (6): 691-694


    Early protocol biopsies of stable, well functioning renal allografts reveal a high prevalence of clinically unsuspected acute and chronic pathology. It is becoming increasingly apparent that these histopathological findings are both pathogenic and predictive of long-term allograft outcome. Therefore, protocol biopsies may be required for optimal post-transplant surveillance until non-invasive methods to detect allograft inflammation are developed.
