Assessing the Potential of Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor And Donor Specific Anti-Endothelial Cell Antibodies To Predict Long-Term Kidney Graft Outcome

from Human Immunology

Endothelial cell antigens have been reported as potential targets for antibodies in the context of organ transplantation, leading to increased risk for graft failure. Serum samples from 142 consecutive living donor kidney recipients were tested for the presence of antibodies to angiotensin II – type 1 receptor (AT1R), donor endothelial cells, and donor HLA. Graft survival was monitored for five years post-transplant, and secondary outcomes, including biopsy-proven rejection, proteinuria, biopsy-proven vasculopathy, and renal function based on serum creatinine were also assessed for the first two to three years. more
