Molecular analysis of renal allograft biopsies--more than a nice toy for researchers?



Molecular analysis of renal allograft biopsies--more than a nice toy for researchers?



American Journal of Transplantation 13(3): 539-540



This editorial discuss two papers (see pages 634 and 645) on molecular diagnosis of kidney transplant injury as an alternative to standard histopathological analysis, highlighting the broad range of opportunities as well as remaining needs influencing the adoption of these techniques into routine clinical practice.
