Heart Allograft Biopsy Interpretation

Obliterative Arteriopathy
Figure 11. This is a higher magnification of the shoulder region of the plaque shown in figure 10 stained with MIB-1, which decorates cells synthesizing DNA. Note the uptake of cells in the shoulder region, which are a mixture of donor and recipient lymphocytes. In this case, one could postulate that an MLR was occurring in the arterial wall.
