Columbia, MD, announced that an independent, peer reviewed, clinical research study in which the level of cellular immune response measured prior to kidney transplantation using its proprietary ImmuKnow immune cell function test was found to identify patients that may be at risk for early acute transplant rejection and unstable kidney function in the first three months following transplantation.
