High baseline anti-ABO antibody titer is still an important obstacle for successful ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation (ABO IKT). This study aims to investigate the clinical outcome of ABO IKT in patients with a high baseline titer in comparison with patients with a low baseline titer. Fourteen patients who received ABO IKT at our center were classified as the high-titer group (≥1:256, n = 8) or the low-titer group (≤1:128, n = 6). We used a protocol composed of rituximab, plasmapheresis… CONTINUE READING
