Donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies detected by Luminex: predictive for short-term but not long-term survival after heart transplantation.


In heart transplantation, the clinical significance of pretransplant donor-specific antibodies (DSA) detected by solid phase assay (SPA), which is more sensitive than the conventional complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) assays, is unclear. The aim was to evaluate SPA performed on pretransplant sera for survival after heart transplantation. Pretransplant… (More)
