      BK Viral Loads and Immune Monitoring in Renal Transplant Recipients (pages 1039–1040)

      S. F. Lacey

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2007 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2007.01767.x

      BK virus-specific T-cell responses in recipients of kidney transplantation are important for control of viral load and protection against polyomavirus-associated nephropathy, but the specific correlates of immune protection are still unclear.

      Kidney Allocation and the Perception of Fairness (pages 1041–1042)

      R. Shapiro

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2007 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2007.01765.x

      In the current debate on how to change kidney allocation to balance utility versus equity, it is important to emphasize public understanding of fairness, since modifications perceived to be unfair will undermine patient confidence and public support. See also viewpoint by Freeman in this issue on page 1043.

      Of kidney transplants performed in Australia and New Zealand between 1997 and 2004, about 30% experienced at least one rejection episode, with the rate falling over time, but with the rate of late graft loss remaining constant. Rejection increased the risk of graft loss, particularly late rejection and vascular rejection.
