Introduction: Antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) is a concern in highly sensitized (HS) patients (pts) receiving renal transplant (tx). We have previously published that a donor specific antibody (DSA) relative intensity score (RIS) of > 17 at time of tx predicted ABMR in HS adults. Here we analyzed risk factors in HS pediatric pts.
Methods: 16 HS pts underwent renal tx from 1/2009 to 10/2014. 15/16 pts received a previous tx. All pts underwent desensitization with IVIg/Rituximab. RIS scores at the time of tx were calculated for each pt (Figure 1). Risk factors for ABMR were examined in 2 groups: ABMR+ (n=7) and ABMR- (n=9) .
Results: Pt characteristics were similar and pt survival was 100%. 2 ABMR+ pts suffered graft loss, one from rejection 16 months post-tx and the other from recurrent FSGS. ABMR+ pts had higher class I and II %PRA, and higher T and B-cell flow cytometric crossmatches at the time of tx, although not statistically significant. However, ABMR+ pts had a significantly higher RIS, p=0.032.
Conclusion: DSA-RIS was the most important predictor of ABMR+ in HS patients and should be considered in both allocation strategy and post-tx monitoring for ABMR.
