Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

O’Leary et al. report that the presence of anti-HLA antibodies at the time of simultaneous liver–kidney transplantation is associated with allograft dysfunction and shortened organ and patient survival. Preformed class I alloantibodies were eliminated after transplantation, whereas class II donor-specific antibodies persisted and were associated with poor outcomes.
