BACKGROUND: Current diagnostic methods of renal allograft rejection are neither sensitive nor specific. Needle biopsies are invasive and associated with patient morbidity. Thus, it is desirable to develop noninvasive tests to predict and diagnose rejection. METHODS: Using a case-control approach, surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry was used to identify plasma proteins associated with renal allograft rejection. From each rejection patient (n=16), two plasma samples (one near the biopsy date and the other at a time postbiopsy) were compared...
