    ..Nonadherence in these patients was very high and amounted to 50%. Monitoring of renal transplant recipients and individualization of therapy considering humoral activity should prolong renal graft survival. ..

Non-HLA antibodies: angiotensin II type 1 receptor (anti-AT1R) and endothelin-1 type A receptor (anti-ETAR) are associated with renal allograft injury and graft loss. Transplant Proc. 2014;46:2618-21 pubmed publisher
    ..High levels of anti-AT1R and/or anti-ETAR antibodies were associated with morphological and functional allograft injury and graft loss in these study patients. Non-HLA antibodies can be helpful in assessing the risk of graft failure. ..

    ..Therefore, clinical implications in elderly transplant recipients should consider appropriate organ allocation with adequate individualization of immunosuppression. ..

Endothelin A Receptors Expressed in Renal Blood Vessels of Renal Transplant Patients Are Connected With Acute Tubular Necrosis or Antibody-Mediated Rejection. Transplant Proc. 2018;50:1760-1764 pubmed publisher
    ..The expression of endothelin receptors in renal blood vessels (small and intermediate arteries) seems to be important in diagnosis of damage during acute tubular necrosis and antibody-mediated rejection. ..

    ..Moreover, during the 1-year follow-up, the reduction in blood pressure was followed by a reduction in transplanted heart hypertrophy, both leading to regression of cardiovascular risk for the patient. ..
