Effects of brain death on stress and inflammatory response in the human donor kidney.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: After kidney transplantation, a decreased graft survival is seen in grafts from brain dead donors compared to living donors, possibly related to a progressive inflammatory reaction in the graft. In this study, we focused on the effects of brain death on the inflammatory response (adhesion molecules, leukocyte infiltration, and gene expression) and stress-related heat shock proteins in the human kidney. Research outcomes and clinical donor parameters were linked to outcome data af...
