Molecular phenotyping of rejection-related changes in mucosal biopsies from lung transplants
Diagnosing lung transplant rejection currently depends on histologic assessment of transbronchial biopsies with limited reproducibility and considerable risk of complications. Mucosal biopsies are safer but not histologically interpretable. Microarray‐based diagnostic systems for TBBs and other transplants suggest such systems could assess mucosal biopsies as well.
