Purpose: There is an elevated risk of acute rejection in HIV+ renal transplant recipients and continued evaluation of the most appropriate induction therapy remains. Use of an IL-2 inhibitor may avoid the potential risks of lymphocyte depletion on accelerated HIV disease progression and infection in the HIV+ recipient. The objective of this study is to assess the role of basiliximab on acute rejection, patient, and allograft survival in HIV+ recipients compared to a matched cohort of HIV- recipients.
Methods: This is a single center, retrospective study of adult HIV+ renal transplant recipients, matched 1:2 to an HIV- cohort, transplanted from 2006 to 2016 who received basiliximab induction. Matching was based on date of transplant within 1 year and race. BPAR, patient and allograft survival were evaluated at 1 and 3 years post-transplant.
Results: A total of 87 patients were included. A trend towards increased biopsy proven acute rejection at 3 years was observed in the HIV+ group (Figure 1). Measured GFR at 1 year was significantly higher in HIV- patients. There was no difference between patient or graft survival at 1 year.
Conclusions: Similar rejection, graft, and survival outcomes were observed when non-lymphocyte depleting induction and CNI-based maintenance therapy was used in an HIV+ and HIV- matched renal transplant cohort.
