This study focuses on the beneficial effect of HLA matching on long-term graft survival rates in CsA-treated living primary kidney transplants at Catholic Medical Center, 1984 to 1993. 1. An impressive 26% difference in kidney graft survival was observed at 5 years between recipients who received 0 and 2 HLA-DR mismatches (79% vs 53%). 2. Five-year kidney graft survival rates in the 0, 1, 2, and 3-HLA-B+DR mismatches were 87%, 76%, 77%, and 74%, respectively, which was significantly different… CONTINUE READING
