Predicting an allograft's fate


Fehr, T; Cohen, C D (2011). Predicting an allograft's fate. Kidney International, 80(12):1254-1255.

Abstract

Renal allografts inevitably develop progressive morphological and functional deterioration.
Naesens et al. now report on a transcriptomic approach to identify transcriptional markers
that might predict rapid development of chronic damage even in histologically unremarkable
allografts. The data indicate that similar processes as seen in overt acute rejection are also
involved in chronic allograft nephropathy. Identifying such “sub-morphological” markers
should help to better understand biological processes leading to chronic allograft failure.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
