Thank you for your question. AMR biopsies are used to screen for antibody mediated rejection (AMR).
Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) defines all allograft rejection caused by antibodies directed against donor-specific HLA molecules or other cell antigens.

This is commonly used for kidney transplants to see if your body is going to reject the transplanted kidney. Are you currently seeking kidney treatment?

Here are some links to information regarding AMR biopsies http://tpis1.upmc.com:81/tpis/kidney/KHAcuRej.html.

If you would like some more information, please write us back with more specific questions or why you are obtaining the biopsy so we may better help answer your question.
