Current Issue Highlights
This Month in AJT
Allograft biopsies have served as the standard for diagnosis in organ transplantation, but their utility has been limited by sampling error. Increasingly, practitioners have looked toward sampling techniques that are less invasive than tissue biopsy and at the same time reflect the entire organ's condition. In this issue we highlight two articles (Greenland et al and Neujahr et al) examining the utility of bronchoalveolar lavage in assessing lung transplant rejection. Both of these studies find that there is substantial untapped information to be gleaned from this secretory product—information that has both diagnostic and mechanistic value. We also present a case report (Calvo et al) of a rare metabolic disorder, lathosterolosis, that was successfully treated by liver transplantation, and surprisingly mollified an autism phenotype associated with this disease.

The AJT Report
Kidney transplant surgeons will take a 10% pay cut in relative value units in 2014. This issue of “The AJT Report” investigates what this cut might mean for transplantation. Also in this issue, we take a look at two new independent studies showing an increased risk of end-stage renal disease in kidney donors.
