Chronic rejection is a slow progressive decline in organ dysfunction while acute rejection is a more rapid decline in function. Although intragraft gene measurements may improve diagnostic accuracy in T cell mediated rejection and antibody mediated rejection, their additive value for allograft survival compared with classical prognostic factors has not yet been demonstrated in large unselected populations. However, during acute cardiac allograft rejection, plasma BNP levels are increased but not those of ANF. The main feature of chronic rejection is accelerated arteriosclerosis or progressive luminal narrowing of graft vessels (vasculopathy or graft vascular disease (GVD)) often accompanied by graft tissue (parenchymal) fibrosis. Previously, we have shown that in response to TCR stimulation, PKC-θ -/-T cells undergo apoptosis due to greatly reduced levels of the anti-apoptotic molecule, Bcl-x L. Although the goal of amniotic membrane tissue preparation is to produce a product that is antigen neutral, all currently available amniotic membrane allografts are capable of producing an immune reaction in individual patients because they contain “non-self” low.
