A Study on a New Staining Method (C4d Staining) of Transplanted Kidney Biopsies
Patients who had received kidney transplantation may suffer from rejection. Recently, positive staining for C4d in kidney biopsies of malfunctioning transplant kidney is increasingly recognized as an important prognostic indicator of poorer long-term kidney outcome. Data is, however, lacking in Hong Kong.
