Proteins may predict lung transplant rejection

...1 lavage samples obtained from 137 lung transplant recipients from 1993-1996, Wendt explained. A lavage is a liquid that doctors introduce into the lung to wash out unwanted material. When the wash is removed, it contains biological material, including proteins, that the researchers hypothesized would be able t...

Scientists discover new virus caused deaths of transplant recipients from single donor
