Determination of antiidiotypic antibodies to anti-HLA IgG following blood transfusions.

Abstract

Blood transfusions (BT) administered prior to renal allograft transplantation are known to enhance allograft survival. One proposed mechanism for this effect is through the induction of antiidiotypic antibodies that modify the immune response to subsequently presented graft antigens. In an attempt to determine if antiidiotypic antibodies are generated post… (More)
