Abstract

Background. Pre-transplant sensitization to human leukocyte antigens (HLA) is a risk factor for graft failure. The purpose of the current single-center study was to evaluate humoral immune response to HLA antigens and the possible relationship between anti-HLA antibody titer and autoimmune disorders in renal transplant candidates.
