BACKGROUND A shortage of organ donors for transplantation has become a serious problem throughout the world. To overcome this problem, transplantations across ABO blood barriers have been performed with some success. In general, however, the graft survival rate for transplantation with ABO incompatibility is lower than that of transplantation with ABO compatibility. Unfortunately, the mechanism by which isohemagglutinins might injure an ABO-incompatible graft remains uncertain. Here, the pre… CONTINUE READING
