Background. CXCR3 binding chemokines play a key role in recruitment of inflammatory cells into an organ transplant. This study addresses the question of whether urinary excretion of these chemokines correlates with acute rejection in a baboon kidney transplantation model. Methods. Seven outbred baboons underwent renal allotransplantation from major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-mismatched donors.
