TcLand Expression SA has announced the launch of the KARE study (Kidney Allograft REjection).
This will be the international, multicentre, prospective clinical validation study for TcLand Expression’s K-RejX qPCR blood test, as a multi-gene molecular diagnostic tool to help in the identification of kidney transplant recipients at risk of chronic antibody-mediated rejection (CAMR). The KARE study will enroll 450 patients from over 30 European and North American large transplantation centers.
In treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), physicians can have a hard time telling which newly diagnosed patients have a high risk of severe inflammation or what therapies will be most effective.
