University of Miami Team Confirms Value of Monitoring Cell-Mediated Immunity Pre- and Post-Transplant in Management of Kidney Transplant Recipients
Date:6/2/2008

time, we are able to watch for sudden, significant changes in the patients' CMI levels, which are predictive of either infection or onset of cellular transplant rejection."

The clinical research team further noted that among 29 patients with persistently low CMI levels (< 100 ng ATP/mL) they observed none of the major consequences reported by other investigators and that low absolute CD4+ T-cell levels did not impede the potential for "strong" ImmuKnow response levels.

About ImmuKnow(R)

ImmuKnow is an immune cell function assay that can detect cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in adult patient populations undergoing immunosuppressive therapy for organ transplantation by measuring the concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) released from CD4 cells following cell stimulation.

The ImmuKnow test is a qualitative assay and does not directly quantify the level of immunosuppression. Results of ImmuKnow assays should be used in conjunction with clinical presentation, medical history, and other clinical indicators when assessing the immune status of any individual patient. The use of the ImmuKnow assay as described in this study has not been approved or cleared by the FDA. The company may use data from this or similar studies to support a future FDA marketing application for a similar indication.
