Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

BAL (broncho alveolar lavage) urine

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: March 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2011
30 patients with stable graft function
30 patients with acute rejection after lung transplantation

Detailed Description:

Goal of the study is the establishment of biomarkers for early diagnosis of acute rejection, followed by a late validation of the paradigm with prospectively collected samples, which will be examined blinded.
