The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships between acute rejection, anti-major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and/or class II-reactive alloantibody production, and chronic rejection of renal allografts following kidney or simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation. Sera from 277 recipients were obtained pretransplant and(More)
Evidence of transplant recipient cellular sensitization towards donor antigens has rarely been directly measured. Rather, sensitization has been generally inferred by the presence of detectable allo-reactive or donor-reactive antibodies. In this study a newly developed delayed-type hypersensitivity assay was used to directly determine the incidence of(More)
The complement-dependent lymphocytotoxicity crossmatch (CXM) is the presently accepted standard for detection of donor-reactive alloantibodies in transplant patients. However, the newer flow cytometric (FXM) and ELISA (EXM) crossmatch technologies are increasingly used as substitutes for the CXM. We have compared the sensitivity and reproducibility of FXM(More)
