Early versus late acute antibody-mediated rejection in renal transplant recipients.
We assessed the characteristics and outcomes of early versus late aABMR. Between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2010, aABMR was diagnosed in 67 grafts in 65 kidney recipients, with a median follow-up of 3.6 years (range, 61 days-7.3 years). Recipients were stratified by early aABMR (<3 months afte...
Identification and characterization of kidney transplants with good glomerular filtration rate at 1 year but subsequent progressive loss of ...
Longitudinal analysis of serial estimated glomerular filtration ratemeasurements identifies initially well-functioning kidney transplants at high risk for subsequent graft loss. For this subset, further studies are needed to identify modifiable causes of functional decline....
Follow-up of tacrolimus breastfed babies.
Terminally differentiated CD8+ Temra cells are associated with the risk for acute kidney allograft rejection.
Advanced ESRD-related T-cell dysregulation that is associated with a relative increase of terminally differentiated CD8 Temra cells protects against AR after kidney transplantation....
Safety and feasibility of diet-treated donors with steatotic livers at the initial consultation for living-donor liver transplantation.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate both safety of diet-treated donors and the feasibility of their use for living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT).
Organ donation and priority points in Israel: an ethical analysis.
We argue that although this approach merits attention for its innovative aspects and its potential benefits, it raises some ethical difficulties. In particular, we discuss some problems of justice and fairness inherent in the system, focusing on inequalities because of the (a) number of relatives on...
Tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis after renal transplantation is dependent on galectin-3.
We adopted a murine model of CAI, characterized by a single class II mismatch between BM12 donor and C57BL/6 recipient strains. Syngeneic transplants served as controls (C57BL/6). Transplants were then performed between BM12 donors and gal-3 null recipients on a C57BL/6 background. RESULTS.: Transpl...
ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation enabled by non-antigen-specific immunoadsorption.
A reusable non-antigen-specific IA device allows high number of treatments at reasonable cost, and at the same time might deplete human leukocyte antigen-alloantibodies....
Can immune cell function assay identify patients at risk of infection or rejection? A meta-analysis.
Nine studies met the inclusion criteria. The pooled estimates for CICFA in identification of infection risk were poor, with a sensitivity of 0.58 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.52-0.64), a specificity of 0.69 (95% CI: 0.66-0.70), a positive likelihood ratio of 2.37 (95% CI: 1.90-2.94), a negative...
Laparoscopic robot-assisted pancreas transplantation: first world experience.
We have shown the feasibility of laparoscopic robot-assisted solitary pancreas and simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation. If the safety and feasibility of this procedure can be confirmed by larger series, laparoscopic robot-assisted pancreas transplantation could become a new option for d...
