Abstract

Since the expression of HLA-DR antigens on peripheral blood T lymphocytes and renal graft tubular epithelial cells may be associated with immunological stimulation, we investigated the expession of these antigens on blood T lymphocytes and graft tubular epithelium in 84 renal transplant patients. Peripheral blood T lymphocytes were monitored by flow cytometry during the first 3 months after transplantation. Since the DR+ lymphocytes were selected by a double-labeling technique used for the Leu2a phenotype, the majority of the DR+ lymphocyts were also Leu2a+ with a small percentae of unidentified Leu2a- lymphocytes. Forty-one patients were treated with cyclosporine (CsA) and 43 with azathioprine (Aza), while both groups received low-dose steroids. Frozen sections of 57 renal biopsies from 43 patients (21 on CsA and 22 on Aza) were stained for HLA-DR antigens. In the Aza group, clinical rejection episoes correlated with an increased percentage of DR+ peripheral lymphocytes (P = 0.0005), and the expression of DR antigens on graft epithelial cells (P+ peripheral lymphocytes correlated with positive staining of the renal tubular cells for HLA-DR antigens (P
