Molecular techniques in transplantation

Transplant Proc. 2004 Apr;36(3):731-2. doi: 10.1016/j.transproceed.2004.03.034.


Molecular tools may prove useful for diagnosis, monitoring, and definition of basic mechanisms in transplantation. These techniques must be quantitative, reproducible and rapid, displaying known sensitivity and specificity. Powerful new techniques with "real-time" application, as briefly reviewed herein, are moving closer to clinical utility.
