Impact of sensitivity of human leucocyte antigen antibody detection by Luminex technology on graft loss at 1 year

Abstract

BACKGROUND The clinical relevance of the detection of human leucocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies in sera of renal transplant recipients by highly sensitive methods such as Luminex alone is uncertain and a matter of debate. The choice of output thresholds affects antibody detection and thus organ allocation, yet there are no internationally agreed threshold… (More)
