Abstract

Pretransplant blood transfusions improve kidney allograft survival by unknown mechanisms. Blood transfusions also stimulate anti-HLA production and delay transplantation for many patients. To better understand the effect of dose of blood and viability of white blood cells on anti-HLA antibody production and graft survival, a randomized study was undertaken.
