We utilized the UNOS Registry graft survival records to determine the fraction of graft failures attributable to immunological or non-immunological factors. Ten-year graft survival of HLA-identical sibling donor grafts was 77% excluding deaths, diabetics, Black recipients, recipients older than age 50, and those who required post-transplant dialysis. With similar exclusions, 10 year graft survival from living HLA-mismatched donors was 66%. To account for the overall 60% graft failures at 10… CONTINUE READING
