The presence of donor specific antibody (DSA) to class 1 or class 2 HLA as detected respectively in T cell or B cell - only flow cytometry cross matches (FCXMs) are risk factors for renal allograft survival, though the comparative risk of these XMs has not been definitively established. Allograft survival and FCXM data in 624 microcytotoxicity (CDC) XM negative kidney transplants were evaluated. Short and long term allograft survival was significantly less in recipients with T(-) B(+) FCXMs (1… CONTINUE READING
