Abstract

The general conclusion that renal transplantation can be carried out successfully despite a positive B-cell crossmatch and certain T and B crossmatches remains valid. A positive crossmatch due to HLA-A, B, C antibodies remains an absolute contraindication to transplantation. However, further studies must be directed at the definition of different types of allogeneic B-cell antibodies so that the effect of these various subgroups on the outcome of renal allografts can be defined more precisely.
