Current Issue Highlights

AJT presents the output from the 2017 Banff consortium for kidney allograft pathology, including revisions to the diagnostic criteria for T cell – and antibody-mediated kidney transplant rejection, specific criteria for chronic active T cell-mediated rejection, and prospects for integrative endpoints in clinical trials. Two Original Articles from Nankivell et al and Lefaucheur et al influence the new Banff recommendations regarding the relationship between T cell–mediated rejection and areas of interstitial scarring. We also present a new Banff classification for tissue engineering pathology in bioengineered organs and tissues for transplantation that will increasingly be used as prosthetic devices and tissue engineering become more common. Finally, be sure to read the “What’s Hot, What’s New” feature from the 2017 American Transplant Congress! Cover image by Lauren Halligan, Duke University Department of Surgery.

Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

This month’s installment of “The AJT Report” covers the recent hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico and Houston, which necessitated prompt action and keen judgment by local hospitals on behalf of transplant patients, and shed a light on emergency response areas that require attention.
