We report an ABO-incompatible kidney transplant performed on a 69-year-old female patient, whose donor was her 69-year-old husband. The patient received an immunosuppressive protocol using rituximab without splenectomy. Renal biopsy was done on posttransplant day 8 due to poor early graft function, and an isolated v-lesion was found, which responded to steroid pulse therapy and gusperimus hydrochloride administration. Our results indicate that isolated v-lesions can occur in ABO-incompatible kidney transplant recipients receiving rituximab and that this finding should be treated as acute rejection...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: No consensus has been reached regarding optimal treatment strategies for ABO-incompatible (ABO-I) living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). We introduce a simplified protocol using rituximab and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG). METHODS: Data were analysed on adult patients who underwent ABO-I LDLT of which protocol added rituximab (300 mg/m(2) ) before surgery and IVIG (0.8 g/kg) on post-operative days 1 and 4 to the conventional immunosuppressive regimen used in ABO-compatible (ABO-C) LDLT, without plasmapheresis, splenectomy or graft local infusion...

Liver transplantation (LT) is the criterion standard of care in patients with end-stage liver disease and those with tumors of hepatic origin in the setting of liver dysfunction. Chronic immune rejection of the liver transplant can lead to bad prognosis for patients. Glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor (GITR) play a key role in dominant immunologic self-tolerance maintained by CD25+/CD4+ regulatory T cells. Here, we investigated the DNA methylation variations of GITR and GITR ligand (GITRL) using pyrosequencing by analyzing blood DNA samples of patients after LT...

The effectiveness of desensitization with rituximab in ABO-incompatible renal transplantation (ABO-I) has been widely reported. However, ABO-I outcomes are still worse than those of ABO-identical or ABO-compatible renal transplantation (ABO-Id/C). We retrospectively examined the outcomes in consecutive living donor ABO-Id/C (n = 412) and ABO-I (n = 205) cases to elucidate the causes of inferiority in ABO-I. ABO-I cases included recipients treated with rituximab (RIT, n = 131), splenectomy (SPX, n = 21), or neither because of low anti-A/B antibody titers (NoR/S, n = 53)...

ABO-incompatible (ABO-i) living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is performed if an ABO-compatible graft cannot be obtained. However, a perfect desensitization protocol has not been established worldwide, especially for simultaneous ABO-i LDLT and splenectomy. We herein report two cases of ABO-i LDLT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of ABO-i LDLT in an adult patient in China. Splenectomy and T-cell-targeted immunosuppression (basiliximab) was used to overcome the blood group barrier in these recipients...

In Asian countries, concomitant splenectomy in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is indicated to modulate the portal vein pressure in the small-sized graft to protect against small for size syndrome. While concomitant splenectomy in deceased donor liver transplantation is almost contraindicated based on Western Reports of increased mortality and morbidity rate due to septic complications, there are few studies about that in LDLT. So, we retrospectively investigated the clinical outcome of adult LDLT at Kyoto University Hospital from July 2010 to July 2016...

BACKGROUND: Rituximab has greatly improved the outcomes of ABO-incompatible living donor liver transplantation (ABO-I LDLT). To clarify the optimal regimen for rituximab in adult ABO-I LDLT, a multicenter study was conducted in Japan. METHODS: Clinical data of 33 adult patients undergoing ABO-I LDLT at 15 centers in 2013 were retrospectively corrected. RESULTS: The targeted blood type was A1 in 18, B in 14, and AB in one patient. Rituximab was administered at 7 to 48 days before LT, at a dose of 375 mg/m(2) in 12 patients, 500 mg in 15 patients, 300 mg in five patients, and 100 mg in one patient...

BACKGROUND: Deceased organ donations are rare in Japan, with most kidney transplants performed from a limited number of living donors. Researchers have thus developed highly successful ABO-incompatible transplantation procedures, emphasizing preoperative desensitization and postoperative immunosuppression. A recent open-label, single-arm, multicenter clinical study prospectively examined the efficacy and safety of rituximab/mycophenolate mofetil desensitization in ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation without splenectomy...

BACKGROUND: Excellent short-term results have been reported in ABO-incompatible (ABOi) renal transplant recipients managed solely with antibody removal and conventional immunosuppression. However, long-term clinical outcomes with this regimen and predictive information from protocol biopsies are lacking. METHODS: We compared outcome data in ABOi and ABO-compatible (ABOc) recipients receiving this regimen approximately 4 years posttransplant, and histology from biopsies approximately 12 months posttransplant...

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, a rare X-linked hereditary syndrome, is characterized by immunodeficiency, thrombocytopenia, and eczema. The underlying T-cell defect renders renal transplantation and immunosuppressive treatments uncertain. The present case exhibited the mild clinical manifestation, regarded as X-linked thrombocytopenia. He successfully underwent a living-donor ABO-compatible renal transplantation and splenectomy in 2002, and thereafter experiencing no severe rejection, serious infection, or malignancy for more than 10 years...

The outcomes of patients who undergo ABO-incompatible (ABO-I) living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) have markedly improved as strategies have become more innovative and advanced. Here, we describe 25 cases of ABO-I LDLT with a simplified protocol and compare the outcomes to those of ABO-compatible LDLT. We analyzed outcomes via a retrospective review of 182 adult LDLT cases including 25 ABO-I LDLTs from January 2011 to December 2014. Propensity scoring was used to compare the groups. The desensitization protocol included plasma exchange, rituximab, and intravenous immunoglobulin without local infusion therapy...

BACKGROUND: Lymphocyte subsets play important roles in rejection in liver transplant recipients, and the effect of splenic function on these roles remains unknown. The aim of this study was to explore the feasibility to adjust immunosuppressive agents based on splenic function status through detecting the lymphocyte subsets in liver transplantBeijing recipients. METHODS: The lymphocyte subsets of 49 liver transplant recipients were assessed in the 309th Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army between June 2014 and August 2015...

Patients requiring desensitization prior to renal transplantation are at risk for developing severe antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) refractory to treatment with plasmapheresis and intravenous immunoglobulin (PP/IVIg). We have previously reported success at graft salvage, long-term graft survival and protection against transplant glomerulopathy with the use of eculizumab and splenectomy in addition to PP/IVIg. Splenectomy may be an important component of this combination therapy and is itself associated with a marked reduction in donor-specific antibody (DSA) production...

BACKGROUND: The use of ABO incompatible (ABOi) graft in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has not been an established procedure worldwide. METHODS: Four hundred and eight adult LDLTs, using ABOi (n=19) and non-ABOi (n=389) grafts, were performed as a single center experience. RESULTS: In ABOi-LDLT group (n=19), median isoagglutinin titer before plasma exchange (PE) at LDLT and after LDLT (max) was ×256, ×32 and ×32, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Rituximab is widely used in kidney transplantation. However, it is not clear whether the conventional doses of maintenance immunosuppressant in rituximab-treated kidney transplantation (KT) are appropriate. In our previous study, decreasing mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) dose due to infection did not increase the incidence of rejection or graft failure. Based on these experiences, we developed a new protocol with a lower dose of MMF and studied its clinical outcomes in rituximab-treated KT...

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of an immunosuppressant on the immunological status of New Zealand white rabbits after skin grafting, and to evaluate a method for monitoring the immunological status of subjects with skin transplants. The rabbits were randomly divided into allograft rejection, autograft tolerance, nontransplant, allograft low-dose immunosuppressant and allograft high-dose immunosuppressant groups. The rabbits in the low- and high-dose immunosuppressant groups were treated with cyclosporine A intravenously 8 h prior to skin transplantation and once daily following transplantation at doses of 2 and 25 mg/kg, respectively...

ABO incompatibility is no longer considered a contraindication for adult living donor liver transplantation (ALDLT) due to various strategies to overcome the ABO blood group barrier. We report the largest single-center experience of ABO-incompatible (ABOi) ALDLT in 235 adult patients. The desensitization protocol included a single dose of rituximab and total plasma exchange. In addition, local graft infusion therapy, cyclophosphamide, or splenectomy was used for a certain time period, but these treatments were eventually discontinued due to adverse events...

OBJECTIVE: To assess changes in anti-blood type antibody titers and postoperative outcomes (graft survival and rejection rates) at our center with the use of the immunosuppressant, rituximab, in ABO-incompatible kidney transplants from living donors. Confirming anti-donor blood group antibodies is important for avoiding humoral rejection in ABO-incompatible kidney transplants. Splenectomy has been carried out in our hospital according to Alexandre's policy in order to suppress the production of anti-donor blood group antibodies...

BACKGROUND: Because of the development of various desensitization strategies, ABO-incompatible (ABOi) living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has become a feasible option for patients with end-stage liver disease. However, there has been no united desensitization protocol for ABOi LDLT. We analyzed the outcomes after establishment of simplified protocol without splenectomy, intravenous immunoglobulin, and local infusion therapy. METHODS: We analyzed 19 ABOi LDLT cases that had been performed between January 2012 and December 2013, without splenectomy and local infusion...

ABO-incompatible intestinal transplantation has rarely been performed due to poor patient outcomes. Herein we present a case of successful ABO-incompatible intestinal transplantation with a 2-year follow-up. A 16-year-old female with a history of extensive bowel resection received an ABO-incompatible living donor bowel graft from her father (blood type AB graft into a type A recipient). Posttransplant immunosuppression consisted of an initial anti-CD20, plasmapheresis/intravenous immunoglobulin before transplantation, followed by an anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) induction and splenectomy, and maintenance with tacrolimus and prednisone...
