Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) is a major cause of kidney graft loss, yet assessment of individual risk at diagnosis is impeded by the lack of a reliable prognosis assay. Here, we tested whether the capacity of anti-HLA antibodies to bind complement components allows accurate risk stratification at the time of AMR diagnosis. Among 938 kidney transplant(More)
BACKGROUND In virtual crossmatch (XM) strategies, a correct anticipation of XM results is required for appropriately allocating organs. We reassessed the ability to predict T lymphocyte flow cytometry and complement dependent cytotoxicity XM results with the mean fluorescence intensity (MFI) in Luminex class I single antigen flow beads (SAFB) assay, after(More)
Anti-HLA donor-specific antibodies are deleterious for organ transplant survival. Class I HLA donor-specific antibodies are identified by using the Luminex single antigen beads (LSAB) assay, which also detects anti-denatured HLA antibodies (anti-dHLAs). Anti-dHLAs are thought to be unable to recognize native HLA (nHLA) on the cell surface and therefore to(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of donor-specific anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies (DSAs) on graft survival is recognized in lung transplantation, but not all serum DSAs appear to be harmful. We wondered whether in situ DSA detection from graft biopsy specimens could help in identifying lung transplant recipients (LTRs) at higher risk for graft loss. (More)
In addition to antibodies targeting native class I human leukocyte antigens (HLA), the single antigen flow beads assay (SAFB) detects antibodies recognizing denatured forms (anti-dHLA). Acid treated SAFB and the modified SAFB reagent named iBeads are expected to distinguish anti-native (anti-nHLA) from anti-dHLA. Sera from 280 class I HLA-sensitized(More)

BACKGROUND Anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibody detection in solid-phase flow beads assays can be quenched by complement activation, but the precise mechanism of this interference is not fully elucidated yet. METHODS Using the Luminex flow beads screening assay for detection of anti-HLA antibodies, we analyzed the binding of high concentrations of(More)
C1q-binding ability may indicate the clinical relevance of de novo donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA). This study investigated the incidence and risk factors for the appearance of C1q-binding de novo DSA and their long-term impact. Using Luminex Single Antigen Flow Bead assays, 346 pretransplant nonsensitized kidney recipients were screened at 2 and 5(More)
