Session Name: Poster Session D: Kidney: Acute Cellular Rejection

Presentation Time: 6:00pm-7:00pm
Location: Hall D1
Hahnemann University Hospital has performed 113 kidney transplants, including 7 ReTx. Herein we describe characteristics and allograft outcomes of HIV(+) kidney transplant recipients based on ReTx status.
Methods: We compared recipient, donor, allograft characteristics between ReTx(n=7) and PrimTx(n=106) HIV(+) kidney recipients at a single center. Immunosuppression consisted of antibody induction (basiliximab (n=112), antithymocyte globulin (n=1,ReTx), and concomitant IVIG (n=19, 2 ReTx/17 CRD)), calcineurin-inhibitor, antiproliferatives, and prednisone. Rejections and allograft outcomes were analyzed between the two cohorts.
Results: Patient characteristics were similar, except more female ReTx (Table 1).Rejection rates were increased in the ReTx cohort (figure 1), which likely impacted survival. Kaplan-Meier curve for allograft survival is shown in figure 2.
Conclusion: Both PrimTx and ReTx HIV(+) kidney recipients are at high risk for rejection and allograft failure. Future studies may focus on the ideal immunosuppression required to improve outcomes for HIV(+) ReTx recipients.
