Hi Dana! 😊 Great to hear from you, as always! It's exciting to hear you were part of the clinical trial for Allosure at Mayo! How often did you have Allosure and how often were you biopsied? Do you still use Allosure like Scott, along with your annual biopsy? I believe it was a successful trial showing that it was very accurate, but still missed things about 10-20% of the time. The biopsy picks up additional trouble like infections, etc that Allosure misses. Therefore, Scott is correct that Allosure is not replacing the protocol biopsies at this time. There are several different brands of this test so maybe there will be additional studies to compare them. I will keep you posted when I hear more! Please keep us posted if you get any additional information at one of your transplant visits or from your trial lead doctor. I am a kidney transplant and I believe the trial was done with heart patients so you may have access to more information from your team (especially the folks that ran the trial). Thanks again Dana for sharing your trial experience and telling me about the numbing cream!

Yes on frequency here are the dates of mine and in depending order the values were 31, 36, 32 31 was the most recent. I don't know the range on the numbers but also I have not rejected so I'm guessing they are in the good range and pretty steady
