abstract

  • Data from 83 consecutive cadaver kidney grafts, followed for between 6 mth and 4 yr, were analyzed in terms of HL A matching and status of prior immunization to HL A antigens. The results, computed in actuarial tables, indicate that both matching and prior sensitization are critical factors in the success or failure of cadaver grafts. Greater than 80% 12 mth success rates can be predicted for cadaver kidney grafts that share 2 or more antigens in immunologically unresponsive recipients.
