Abstract
Different biomarkers have been recently described bringing interesting results regarding predictive outcomes in the field of kidney transplantation. In this setting, an evaluation for pre-transplant biomarkers especially in the era of expanded criteria donors (ECDs) and non-heart-beating donors (NHBDs) could help transplant physicians to make decisions on allocation or even on discharge of the allograft. Furthermore, identify pre-transplant biomarkers is useful for a risk stratification of delayed graft function (DGF), acute rejection (AR) episodes and chronic allograft dysfunction (CAD) after kidney transplantation (KT). In this review, we report recent findings on pre-transplant biomarkers from various biological samples from donors or recipients.

Notes

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

New findings in “omics” and genomics allowed us to find out new robust biomarkers that may allow a diagnosis avoiding invasive and dangerous procedures. This could be of particular importance if applied on transplant clinical practice. In kidney transplantation several pre-transplant biomarkers revealed useful either for a better renal allocation and as predictive of future outcomes as delayed graft function, rejections and long term outcome.
