          Jill, Cynthia could answer this better, since she's had a transplant, but it's the grading system they use to check for rejection. You can't do anything better than testing a zero. - no signs of rejection on biopsy.

              Well, it was 4 years ago today that I had my transplant...I want to thank all of the wonderful, caring doctors at Tufts Medical Center in Boston for their extraordinary care and compassion throughout my ordeal. Not for one minute, did I lose faith in them. God bless them all...
