  1. Anti-Scl-70 antibodies were measured at pre-transplant period (baseline) and sequentially during follow-up by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay as described in methods section. Quantified results are expressed in arbitrary units/ml as previously published ([8])
  2. aPositive for Anti-Scl-70 antibodies
  3. bAnti-Scl-70 antibodies levels measured by BioPlex ANA Screen
