Dr. Gupta discusses his experience with MMDx® Kidney, lab-developed a test that applies gene expression profiling for the assessment of injury and rejection at the molecular level in transplant biopsies. He explores how molecular diagnostics can be used in clinical practice, including how the test can complement traditional histology as well as how the results can be incorporated in patient management.

The presentation covers these topics:

  • Recognize the significance of molecular diagnostic methods in kidney transplantation
  • Understand the complementary diagnostic value of gene expression in kidney transplant biopsies in addition to traditional histology
  • Understand how to incorporate the molecular microscope results into a management plan
