BACKGROUND Donor-specific antibodies (DSAs) after kidney transplantation have been associated with poor graft outcomes in multiple studies. However, these studies have generally used stored sera or a single cross sectional screening test to identify patients with DSA. We evaluated the effectiveness of a prospective DSA screening protocol in identifying kidney and kidney/pancreas recipients at risk for poor graft outcomes. METHODS From September 2007 through September 2009, 244 consecutively… CONTINUE READING
