    Abstract

    The article presents an overview of literature related to two topical issues in modern medicine: transplantation and biomarkers. There have been advances made in the use of immunoenzymometric and immunoadsorption assays in organ transplantation clinics for evaluating different situations. However, these methods fail to solve more complex and ambiguous transplantation problems: tolerance, personification of treatment, etc. In this regard, the first results of prospective studies using OMICS methods of genomics and proteinomics, in relation to the notion of transplantomics, are presented.
