Aim. ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation has been accepted for end-stage renal failure patients who have no ready opportunity for a deceased or living donor. Antibody titration for ABO-incompatible renal transplantation is not only difficult but also lacks conformity among laboratories. Herein we analyzed 20 living related renal transplant couples to detect recipient anti-A2 antibody using flow cytometric analysis.
