Selected summary of Bohne F, Martínez-Llordella M, Lozano JJ, et al. Intragraft expression of genes involved in iron homeostasis predicts the development of operational tolerance in human liver transplantation. J Clin Invest 2012;122: 368–382.

Lifetime immunosuppressive therapy, which is usually needed to prevent rejection of the graft in solid organ transplantation, may have serious side effects resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. The liver is unique in organ transplantation; up to 20% of transplant recipients can be weaned off immunosuppressive drugs and display “operational tolerance” of the graft in the absence of immunosuppression (Transplantation 2011;91:1065–1974)...

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
