Biomarkers in Kidney Transplantation: Clinical Aspects and Laboratory Determination provides a focused study on traditional and emerging biomarkers to predict early rejection of kidney transplants supporting appropriate therapeutic interventions. Coverage includes predictive and diagnostic biomarkers for different types of rejections, including biomarkers of acute, chronic/sub chronic rejection or clinical rejection, T-cell mediated rejection, antibody mediated rejection and mixed rejection. Comparisons are provided for broad classification of pharmacokinetic versus pharmacodynamic biomarkers, and differentiation is shown between the susceptibility, diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and monitoring biomarkers.

Coverage of the analytical aspects of biomarker measurement, the process of biomarker discovery and their clinical validation addresses both the clinical features of biomarkers as well as the pitfalls of determining such biomarkers in clinical laboratories. By combining all current markers known for kidney transplant in one collection, this easy-to-use reference is perfect for pathologists, clinical pharmacologists, clinical laboratory scientists and all physicians involved in organ transplantation, including immunologists and transplant surgeons.
