NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers at Stanford University are exploring next-generation sequencing of circulating cell-free DNA as a means to noninvasively diagnose rejection and infection in organ transplant recipients.

The group has tested the whole-genome technique on heart, lung, and kidney transplant recipients and thinks that such a test could eventually compete with current gold standards for monitoring transplant rejection, which are invasive, expensive, and subjective.
