Cerebral injury during Donation after Brain Death (DBD) will induce a systemic inflammatory response affecting immediate kidney function and survival posttransplantation. Assessment of donor organ quality prior to transplant that can predict transplantation outcomes will improve donor organ utilisation and provide monitoring tools for novel targeted interventions to resuscitate donor organs.
DBD kidney biopsies obtained at retrieval (n=38) were provided by the UK QUOD biobank. Biopsy samples were selected from donors from whom both kidneys were transplanted and had the same posttransplantation outcomes; either suboptimal (SO) or good (GO). Kidneys with SO (n=19) had all developed delayed graft function (DGF) and had a mean 1yr eGFR 35 +/- 6ml/min. Kidneys with GO (n=19) had all functioned immediately and had a mean 1yr eGFR 73 +/-18ml/min. Demographic confounders for outcome include age, cold ischaemia, AKIN and Remuzzi scoring were matched. Samples were analysed by clinical proteomics (n=10) and candidate markers then validated by immunoblotting on a separate cohort of donor kidney samples (n=28).
Remuzzi scoring and AKIN classification showed no evidence of acute or chronic kidney injury in the donor kidneys. However, proteomic analysis could differentiate between the donor kidneys that had SO from those with GO posttransplantation. Validation of candidate markers supported this discrimination and showed that degradation of glomerular basement membrane proteins, pro-fibrotic and apoptotic markers correlated with SO allograft function while increased antioxidant protein levels were associated with GO allografts.Discussion:
This study suggests that proteomic profiling of pretransplant donor kidneys may correlate with posttransplant outcomes at 1yr. This is a first, step towards clinical validation to better support clinical decision making whether to accept or decline a donor kidney.
