BACKGROUND It is unclear whether kidney transplant recipients with preformed donor-specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies (DSA) detectable only in the highly sensitive Luminex single-antigen (LSA) assay are at an increased risk of graft failure. METHODS We studied 3148 patients who received a deceased donor kidney graft between 1996 and 2008 and were enrolled in the prospective serum project of the Collaborative Transplant Study. There were 118 patients with graft loss during the… CONTINUE READING
