Despite new immunosuppressive approaches, acute rejection episodes (ARE) are still a major cause of early kidney dysfunction with a negative impact on long-term allograft survival. Noninvasive markers able to identify renal ARE earlier than creatinine measurement include sCD30. We sought to establish whether circulating levels of sCD30 in pretransplantation… (More)
The HLA-B*50:18 allele differs from the closest related B*50:01:01 by one nucleotide substitution at position 454 in exon 3.
We describe the identification of the novel HLA-A*24:135 allele [nucleotide 397 (T→C) in exon 3, Phe→Leu at codon 109 in α2 domain, compared with A*24:02:01] by sequence-based typing (SBT).
Anti-HLA-specific donor antibodies induce rapid, irreversible destruction of the transplant (hyperacute rejection) that today happens rarely due to immunologic studies-prospective crossmatch-of patients awaiting the kidney graft. The usual approach for pretransplant donor/recipient evaluation is based on 2 methods: (1) the cytotoxic complement crossmatch… (More)
