Non-HLA Antibodies: Preliminary Experience 2021 International Clinical Webinar

Dr. Koefoed-Nielsen presents data for a patient who had undergone two kidney transplantations, experienced allograft failure soon after receiving a third kidney transplant. With a negative crossmatch and no DSA detected, further investigation was required. Non-HLA autoantibodies can be associated with adverse transplantation outcomes1, so they screened the patient and eight others who experienced similar outcomes for autoantibodies using the One Lambda LABScreen Autoantibody Group 1 and Group 2 assays. All nine patients had high levels of REG3A, LMNB, PRKCH, GAPDH, HNRNPK, VM, and IFNG autoantibodies, which has been correlated with humoral rejection in kidney and heart transplant recipients.
