Currently, the ability to predict or monitor the efficacy of HLA antibody-removal therapies is deficient. We previously reported that titration studies are a consistent and accurate means of assessing antibody strength. To test whether titration studies can also predict which patients are better candidates for desensitization, we studied 38 patients from 3 centers (29 receiving plasmapheresis/low-dose intravenous immunoglobulin [IVIg]; 9 patients receiving high-dose IVIg). For patients undergoin...

A major hurdle to improving clinical care in the field of kidney transplantation is the lack of biomarkers of the response to antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) treatment. To discover these we investigated the value of complement-binding donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSAs) for evaluating the response to treatment. The study encompassed a prospective cohort of 139 kidney recipients with ABMR receiving the standard of care treatment, including plasma exchange, intravenous immunoglobulin and ...

Background Anti-human leukocyte antigen donor-specific antibodies (anti-HLA DSAs) are recognized as a major barrier to patients鈥 access to organ transplantation and the major cause of graft failure. The capacity of circulating anti-HLA DSAs to activate complement has been suggested as a potential biomarker for optimizing graft allocation and improving the rate of successful transplantations. Methods and findings To address the clinical relevance of complement-activating anti-HLA DSAs across all ...

The impact of the kinetics of the anti-HLA antibodies after KTx on the occurrence of acute rejection as well as the better time-point to monitor anti-HLA Abs after transplantation is not completely defined. This prospective study followed 150 patients over 12 months after transplantation. Serum IgG anti-HLA Abs were detected by single antigen beads after typing donors and recipients for loci A, B, C, DR, and DQ. Before KTx, 89 patients did not present anti-HLA Abs and 2% developed 鈥渄e novo鈥 Abs ...

Abstract Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) of cardiac allografts mediated by anti-HLA Donor Specific Antibodies (DSA) is one of the major barriers to successful transplantation for the treatment of end-stage heart failure. Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is a first-line treatment for pre-transplant desensitization. However, indications for treatment regimens and treatment end-points have not been well established. In this study, we investigated how sera dilutions could guide TPE regimens for e...
