Dragun Pretransplant Sensitization Against Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor Is a Risk Factor for Acute Rejection and Graft Loss American Journal of Transplantation 13

The authors find that a high serum level of anti-angiotensin II type 1 receptor antibodies in kidney transplant recipients before transplantation is an independent risk factor for long-term graft loss in association with a higher risk of early acute rejection episodes.
