Background. Presensitization and degree of HLA-matching influences immunologic outcome and kidney graft survival. Thus the donor-recipient relationship may influence incidence of immunologic events and outcome in living related kidney transplantation (KTx). The aim of the study was to analyze the long-term immunologic outcomes of living KTx depending on the donor-recipient relationship.
Materials and methods. This retrospective single center long-term observational study included kidney transplant recipients (KTR) between 2000 and 2014. KTR from living donors (178 pts) were categorized according to donor-recipient relationship: 65 KTx between siblings, 39 father-to-child (FtC) and 74 mother-to-child (MtC) donations. DSA analysis and allograft biopsies were performed for clinically suspected rejections. Data analysis included patient and graft survival, biopsy proven rejection episodes (T-cell mediated (TCMR) or antibody mediated (ABMR)) and development of de novo DSA. Outcome data were assessed over a period of maximal 14 years.
Results. There were no significant difference between the groups (siblings, FtC, MtC) with regards to HLA-mismatch, prior kidney transplantation, time on dialysis and cold ischemia time. Donor-recipient relationship had no significant influence on graft survival (Fig 1A). Among KTR with related donors FtC- and MtC-pares showed comparable incidences of TCMR, both significantly exceeding the rate in sibling-to-sibling pares (Fig 2B). The multivariant cox regression analysis adjusted for recipient age, donor age and HLA (A, B, DR)-mismatch identified both MtC and FtC donation as important independent risk factors for TCMR (HR 8.13, p<0.001 and HR 8.09, p=0.001, respectively). There was no significant difference between the groups in terms of ABMR (Fig. 1C) and development of de novo DSA (Fig. 1D) .
Conclusion. Our results point out parent-to-child kidney donation as an independent risk factor for TCMR.
