Serial Monitoring With ImmuKnow(R) is Useful in the Risk Assessment of Kidney Transplant Recipients
Date:5/30/2009

The results of this study will be presented during the American Transplant Congress in Boston, MA May 30 - June 3, 2009

COLUMBIA, Md., May 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Lead investigator, Dr. Manuel R. Carreno, along with his colleagues from the University of Miami, evaluated whether single or serial ImmuKnow assessments are most useful in determining rejection or infection in kidney transplant recipients. Patients were randomly selected after 30-60 days (N=134) or 335-395 days posttransplant (N=91) and tested with ImmuKnow.

Based on the results of this study, Dr. Carreno commented, "Pre-transplant baseline readings and serial monitoring with ImmuKnow are crucial for posttransplant risk assessments. Our results suggest that an isolated ImmuKnow test is insufficient to aid in the management of posttransplant recipients." In addition, Dr. Carreno said, "Serial posttransplant ImmuKnow values are useful because patients with 'immunological quiescence' have fewer complications compared to patients with erratic ImmuKnow values."

"We believe that ImmuKnow is a valuable, noninvasive tool for helping clinicians manage their transplant patients," added Dr. Phillip Ruiz, author and Medical Director of the Transplant Laboratories. "We recognize that the immune system responds quickly to change and that regular patient monitoring is critical to understanding these changes, which is why we test weekly in the first month posttransplant, followed by weeks 6 and 8 testing in the second month, monthly testing during months 3-12, and then as needed when circumstances suggest the immune function is affected."
