acute cellular rejection

a·cute cel·lu·lar re·jec·tion

graft rejection that usually begins within 10 days after a graft has been transplanted into a genetically dissimilar host. Lesions at the site of the graft characteristically are infiltrated with large numbers of lymphocytes and macrophages that cause tissue damage. See: primary rejection.
Synonym(s): acute rejection

Liquid biopsy can be utilised to diagnose acute cellular rejection. Transplant liquid biopsies quantitatively measure donor-derived cell-free DNA concentrations.
Similarly, in the first reported longitudinal study, Simon and collaborators reported that acute cellular rejection could be detected by serial peripheral blood analyses of the perforin and granzyme B increased expression (17).

The viral load may be influenced by corticosteroid intake [2], and the histologic features of recurrent hepatitis C may be modified by immunosuppressive therapy, which harden its differentiation from acute cellular rejection (ACR) [3].
A higher age and weight at transplant, treatment for acute cellular rejection and polycystic kidney disease were found to be significantly associated with the risk of NODAT.
50%-75% of recipients experience acute cellular rejection, most commonly in the first 90 days, while chronic rejection (CR) occurs in 15% of patients (18).
Recipient LT3 developed an episode of graft rejection (specifically acute cellular rejection) at day 7.
At follow-up, five patients were biopsied because of an increased serum creatinine (12.2%): two had an acute cellular rejection episode (Banff Ib and IIa; at day 45 and month 8, resp.), two had interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy, and the other had findings that supported a BK virus infection.
The transplant kidney biopsy showed evidence of acute cellular rejection with acute tubular necrosis that was treated with high-dose steroids.
