Brian Shields's insight:

Important quote from the article:

 

"The discovery, if validated in a larger population of patients, could be a boon for transplant recipients by allowing their care team to address rejection-related problems before the risk of graft loss becomes too high. "There are a number of medications available and in the pipeline to treat CAV and other forms of chronic rejection," said Briscoe. "The problem has been detecting disease early, when these drugs would be most effective." "

Biomarkers could give early warning of late heart transplant rejection

Biomarkers could give early warning of late heart transplant rejection | Biomarkers and Personalized Medicine | Scoop.it
A combination of three blood-borne proteins may bolster efforts to prevent graft loss years after transplantBOSTON, Dec.
Brian Shields's insight:

"Researchers at Boston Children's Hospitalhave found a combination of biomarkers related to blood vessel and tissue injury that, when measured together, could signal when a transplanted heart is becoming damaged to the point of failure, a process that is often undetected. The markers would give doctors an opportunity to intervene and save a recipient's heart, and also provide a starting point for identifying long-term rejection biomarkers for several kinds of organ transplants.

 

The research team—led by Kevin P. Daly, MD, and David M. Briscoe, MD, of the Transplant Research Program (TRP) at Boston Children's Hospital, and S. Ananth Karumanchi, MD, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center—published their findings online Dec. 26 in the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation."
