By detecting biomarker antibodies that form against Angiotensin II Type I Receptors (AT1R), this assay offers a new approach to transplant diagnostic testing at a non-HLA level. AT1R is found in most major organs, suggesting the importance of anti-AT1R antibodies as a possible biomarker for solid organ transplants and Antibody Mediated Rejection.
