An antigenic mismatch between donor and recipient blood. Antibodies present in the recipient's serum may be directed against antigens in the donor product. Such a mismatch may result in a transfusion reaction in which, for example, donor blood is hemolyzed. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984).
The major human blood type system which depends on the presence or absence of two antigens A and B. Type O occurs when neither A nor B is present and AB when both are present.

Serious hazards of transfusion (SHOT) initiative: analysis of the first two annual reports. (1/234)

OBJECTIVE: To receive and collate reports of death or major complications of transfusion of blood or components. DESIGN: Haematologists were invited confidentially to report deaths and major complications after blood transfusion during October 1996 to September 1998. SETTING: Hospitals in United Kingdom and Ireland. SUBJECTS: Patients who died or experienced serious complications, as defined below, associated with transfusion of red cells, platelets, fresh frozen plasma, or cryoprecipitate. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, "wrong" blood transfused to patient, acute and delayed transfusion reactions, transfusion related acute lung injury, transfusion associated graft versus host disease, post-transfusion purpura, and infection transmitted by transfusion. Circumstances relating to these cases and relative frequency of complications. RESULTS: Over 24 months, 366 cases were reported, of which 191 (52%) were "wrong blood to patient" episodes. Analysis of these revealed multiple errors of identification, often beginning when blood was collected from the blood bank. There were 22 deaths from all causes, including three from ABO incompatibility. There were 12 infections: four bacterial (one fatal), seven viral, and one fatal case of malaria. During the second 12 months, 164/424 hospitals (39%) submitted a "nil to report" return. CONCLUSIONS: Transfusion is now extremely safe, but vigilance is needed to ensure correct identification of blood and patient. Staff education should include awareness of ABO incompatibility and bacterial contamination as causes of life threatening reactions to blood.  (+info)

ABO blood group antigens on human plasma von Willebrand factor after ABO-mismatched bone marrow transplantation. (2/234)

von Willebrand factor (vWF) is synthesized exclusively by endothelial cells and megakaryocytes, and stored in the intracellular granules or constitutively secreted into plasma. ABO blood group antigens are covalently associated with asparagine-linked sugar chains of plasma vWF. The effect of ABO-mismatched bone marrow transplantation (BMT) or blood stem cell transplantation (BSCT) on the expression of ABO blood group antigens on the vWF was examined to obtain information on the origin of these antigens. In ABO-mismatched (HLA-matched) groups, 8 cases of BMT and 4 cases of BSCT were examined. In all cases, the ABO blood groups on red blood cells were gradually converted to the donor's type within 80 to 90 days after the transplantation. The blood group antigens on the vWF were consistent with the recipient's blood group for the period monitored by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). When vWF was isolated from normal platelets and examined for the blood group antigens using ELISA or immunoblotting, it showed few antigens. However, vWF extracted from veins expressed blood group antigens. These findings indicate that platelet (megakaryocyte)-derived vWF does not contain blood group antigens and that these antigens may be specifically associated with vWF synthesized in endothelial cells and secreted into plasma. Furthermore, it is possible that the persistence of the recipient's blood group antigens on plasma glycoproteins such as vWF, independent of the donor-derived erythrocytes, after ABO-mismatched stem cell transplantation, may influence the immunological system in the production of anti-blood group antibodies resulting in the establishment of immunological tolerance in the recipient plasma.  (+info)

Perinatal risk factors for childhood type 1 diabetes in Europe. The EURODIAB Substudy 2 Study Group. (3/234)

OBJECTIVE: To explore whether perinatal factors are associated with the development of childhood type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We studied hospital records from 892 cases of childhood type 1 diabetes compared with 2,291 population-based control subjects in seven study centers in Europe. RESULTS: In a pooled analysis incorporating stratification by center, we confirmed the previous findings that older maternal age, maternal preeclampsia, neonatal respiratory disease, and jaundice caused by blood group incompatibility are significant risk factors for type 1 diabetes, whereas being a firstborn child, having a low birth weight, or having a short birth length were protective. Cesarean section delivery and neonatal infectious diseases were not significantly associated with the risk of type 1 diabetes in this study. The strongest association was found for blood group incompatibility (AB0 and Rh factor) with an odds ratio (OR) of 2.96 (95% CI 1.88-4.65). AB0 incompatibility (OR = 3.92) was a more common and also a stronger risk factor than Rh incompatibility (OR = 1.62). The effect of AB0 blood group incompatibility was independent of treatment effects in logistical regression analysis. CONCLUSIONS: Different perinatal events are associated with an increased risk of type 1 diabetes. The effect of maternal-child blood group incompatibility is strong and indicates a true effect that must be further explored.  (+info)

Noninvasive diagnosis by Doppler ultrasonography of fetal anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. Collaborative Group for Doppler Assessment of the Blood Velocity in Anemic Fetuses. (4/234)

BACKGROUND: Invasive techniques such as amniocentesis and cordocentesis are used for diagnosis and treatment in fetuses at risk for anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. The purpose of our study was to determine the value of noninvasive measurements of the velocity of blood flow in the fetal middle cerebral artery for the diagnosis of fetal anemia. METHODS: We measured the hemoglobin concentration in blood obtained by cordocentesis and also the peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery in 111 fetuses at risk for anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. Peak systolic velocity was measured by Doppler velocimetry. To identify the fetuses with anemia, the hemoglobin values of those at risk were compared with the values in 265 normal fetuses. RESULTS: Fetal hemoglobin concentrations increased with increasing gestational age in the 265 normal fetuses. Among the 111 fetuses at risk for anemia, 41 fetuses did not have anemia; 35 had mild anemia; 4 had moderate anemia; and 31, including 12 with hydrops, had severe anemia. The sensitivity of an increased peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery for the prediction of moderate or severe anemia was 100 percent either in the presence or in the absence of hydrops (95 percent confidence interval, 86 to 100 percent for the 23 fetuses without hydrops), with a false positive rate of 12 percent. CONCLUSIONS: In fetuses without hydrops that are at risk because of maternal red-cell alloimmunization, moderate and severe anemia can be detected noninvasively by Doppler ultrasonography on the basis of an increase in the peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery.  (+info)

Anti-A isoagglutinin as a risk factor for the development of pure red cell aplasia after major ABO-incompatible allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (5/234)

Delayed erythropoiesis and pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) have been reported after major ABO-incompatible BMT. We attempted to find risk factors for the development of PRCA in 27 patients who underwent major ABO-incompatible BMT. In all patients, the donor marrow was depleted of RBCs before infusion. In 22 patients, isoagglutinins were determined until they disappeared. In eight (29.6%) out of 27 patients, bone marrow examination following BMT showed the findings of PRCA. We analyzed various clinico-pathologic risk factors and isoagglutinin type was the only significant risk factor. Patients with anti-A isoagglutinins against donor RBC developed PRCA more frequently than patients with anti-B (8/17 vs 0/9). Median days to the disappearance of isoagglutinins tended to be longer in patients with PRCA (PRCA vsnon-PRCA, 200 vs 66 days) and in cases with anti-A isoagglutinins (anti-A vsanti-B, 160 vs 51 days). Times to disappearance of isoagglutinins correlated with times to reticulocytes over 1% and initial appearance of donor type RBC (R2 = 0.708 and 0.711). In conclusion, RBC engraftment following major ABO-incompatible BMT was dependent on the disappearance of isoagglutinins against donor RBC, and anti-A isoagglutinin was a risk factor for the development of PRCA after major ABO-incompatible allogeneic BMT.

Relative sensitivity of direct antiglobulin test, antibody's elution and flow cytometry in the serologic diagnosis of immune hemolytic transfusion reactions. (6/234)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Current immunohematology practice dictates that serologic diagnosis of immune hemolytic transfusion reactions (IHTR) is based on the finding of a positive post-transfusion direct antiglobulin test (DAT). However, since DAT may fail to detect antibody-coated cells when they constitute a minor population amid a large number of non-sensitized ones, we investigated whether antibody detection in eluates or by flow cytometry is more sensitive than DAT in this context. DESIGN AND METHODS: Ten samples of red blood cells sensitized with allo- or autoantibodies were diluted in non-sensitized red blood cells to final concentrations ranging from 10% to 0.1%. DAT, antibody detection in eluates, and immunofluorescence by flow cytometry were performed on each mixture. RESULTS: DAT failed to detect sensitized cells in all but two cases in that only the 10% dilution yielded a positive DAT. Antibody detection in eluates and by flow cytometry was able to detect up to 1% sensitized cells in most cases. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Antibody detection in eluates and by flow cytometry is more sensitive than DAT for detecting minor populations of IgG-coated cells. These techniques should be included in the routine investigation of suspected cases of IHTR.  (+info)

Bone marrow transplantation from alternative donors for thalassemia: HLA-phenotypically identical relative and HLA-nonidentical sibling or parent transplants. (7/234)

Twenty-nine patients with thalassemia and a median age of 6 years (range 1.1-33 years) were given a BMT from an alternative donor. Six of the 29 donors were HLA-phenotypically identical and two were mismatched relatives, 13 were mismatched siblings and eight were mismatched parents. Six patients received no antigen (relatives), 15 patients one antigen, five patients two antigen and three patients three antigen disparate grafts. Twenty-three patients were in class 2 or class 3, whereas six patients were in class 1. Thirteen patients were given BUCY, nine patients BUCY plus ALG, six patients BUCY plus TBI or TLI and one patient BUCY with prior cytoreductive-immunosuppressive treatment as conditioning. As GVHD prophylaxis four patients received MTX, 22 CsA + MTX + methylprednisolone (MP) and three patients CsA + MP. Thirteen of 29 patients (44.8%) had sustained engraftment. The probability of graft failure or rejection was 55%. There were no significant differences between antigen disparities and graft failure. The incidence of grade II-IV acute GVHD was 47.3% and chronic GVHD was 37.5%. The incidence of acute GVHD was higher in patients receiving one or two antigen disparate in the GVHD direction grafts (vs no antigen) (P EQ 0.04; odds ratio 10.8; 95% CI 1.5-115). The probability of overall and event-free survival was 65% and 21%, respectively, with median follow-up of 7.5 years (range 0.6-17 years) for surviving patients. The degree of HLA disparity between patient and donor did not have a significant effect on survival. The incidence of nonhematologic toxicity was low. Transplant-related mortality was 34%. GVHD (acute or chronic) was a major contributing cause of death (50%) followed by infections (30%). We conclude that at present, due to high graft failure and GVHD rates, BMT from alternative donors should be restricted to patients who have poor life expectancies because they cannot receive adequate conventional treatment or because of alloimmunization to minor blood antigens.  (+info)

Acceptance of an ABO-incompatible mismatched (AB(+) to O(+)) liver allograft with the use of daclizumab and mycophenolate mofetil. (8/234)

Liver allograft survival rates of 50% to 60% are reported in blood group A, group B, group O (ABO)-incompatible mismatched grafts even when aggressive immunosuppressive protocols, including plasmapheresis, OKT(3), cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, prostaglandin E(1), and steroids, are used. A 59-year-old woman, blood type O(+), required emergency retransplantation posttransplantation day 2 because of primary nonfunction of the liver allograft. A blood type AB(+) allograft was used. Induction immunosuppressive therapy included tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, OKT(3) (muromonab-CD(3)), steroids, and prostaglandin E(1). In addition, plasmapheresis was performed daily for 9 days. OKT(3) and prostaglandin E(1) were also discontinued postoperative day 9. Biopsy-proven acute cellular rejection was diagnosed postoperative day 12 and was treated with double-dose OKT(3) (10 mg) for another 6 days. On the day OKT(3) was discontinued, daclizumab, 60 mg, was administered intravenously. This dose was repeated every 2 weeks for a total of 5 doses. At 1-year follow-up, the patient is doing very well with normal liver function. We are unaware of previous reports of the use of daclizumab and mycophenolate mofetil as part of an immunosuppressive protocol aimed to induce acceptance of ABO-incompatible mismatched liver allografts. Based on our experience with this case, it seems that mycophenolate mofetil is an adequate replacement for cyclophosphamide. We also believe daclizumab provided adequate protection at a critical time. Further experience with both these drugs is required to establish their role in ABO-incompatible mismatched liver allografts.  (+info)

ABO-incompatible (ABO-i) kidney transplantation (KT) has emerged for overcoming the shortage of organ donors. Although this technique initially achieved only low graft survival due to isoagglutinin, recently developed desensitization protocols have improved survival to levels that are comparable to ABO-compatible KT. However, isoagglutinin is still regarded as a major obstacle to ABO-i KT. In this study, we evaluate the impact of isoagglutinin titer on clinical outcomes as well as factors that may influence isoagglutinin titers. In total, data from 95 patients who underwent ABO-i KT were analyzed. Preoperatively, rituximab administration and plasmapheresis were performed until the titer was reduced to ≤1:4. Retrospective analysis included blood group; timing and dosage of rituximab; isoagglutinin titer; number of plasmapheresis; and clinical outcomes including graft survival and serum creatinine. Graft survival was 95.8% (n = 91) and average serum creatinine at 1- and 1.5-year post-ABOi-KT was ...
Anaphylaxis and severe allergic transfusion reactions (ATR) are uncommon complications after blood transfusion. Nevertheless, these complications are associated with very severe outcomes, such as dyspnea, shock, and death. Patients with end-stage liver disease who require liver transplantation have a high tendency for bleeding because of splenomegaly-induced thrombocytopenia and decreased production of coagulation factors in the liver. Liver transplantation is a very long procedure and a significant perioperative blood loss is highly likely. Therefore, transfusion of platelets and other blood products is often necessary. We report a successful ABO-incompatible living donor liver transplantation in a patient with hepatitis B virus-related liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma who had a history of platelet transfusion-related anaphylaxis..

A delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) is a type of transfusion reaction. It is defined as fever and other symptoms/ signs of hemolysis more than 24 hours after transfusion; confirmed by one or more of the following: a fall in haemoglobin (Hb) level or failure of Hb level to rise after transfusion rise in bilirubin (jaundice) incompatible crossmatch not detectable pre-transfusion. This can occur up to four weeks after the transfusion. Delayed blood transfusion reaction occurs more frequently (1 in 20,569 blood components transfused in the USA in 2011) when compared to acute haemolytic transfusion reaction. One way this can occur is if a person without a Kidd blood antigen receives a Kidd antigen in a transfusion. Other common blood groups with this reaction are Duffy and Kell.

Incompatible, yet needed: What are incompatible kidney transplants? And why are they done? The human body is primed to identify and destroy invaders like viruses, bacteria and other pathogens that can bring illness or death. Cells of the immune system and the antibodies they make recognize such foreign bodies and act to remove and destroy them. This defense system is a potential problem for kidney transplants. People have different blood groups and different human leukocyte antigens that can provoke an attack if a tissue, such as a kidney, or blood is transferred from one person to another. These two barriers are called blood group incompatibility and tissue (or histo-) incompatibility. A kidney transplant team uses the histocompatibility and blood bank testing laboratories to determine whether the tissues and blood group of a volunteer living kidney donor and the intended recipient match. A match is good, but matches are not always possible.. ...

Introduction: ABO-incompatible heart transplantation, traditionally contraindicated because of the risk of hyperacute rejection, has been used selectively in recent years. Infants have limited production of isohemagglutinins, which may lower the risk of hyperacute rejection. We analyzed the impact of ABO-incompatibility on outcomes after heart transplantation in infants.. Methods: Heart transplant recipients ,1 year of age reported to the United Network for Organ Sharing from 1999-2007 were divided according to donor-recipient ABO-incompatibility or compatibility. Outcomes included Kaplan-Meier survival and hyperacute rejection. Propensity-adjusted Cox regression modeling was used to identify predictors of mortality.. Results: 591 infants underwent heart transplantation: 35 (6%) received allografts from ABO-incompatible donors. ABO-incompatible recipients trended toward more congenital heart disease (71 vs 66%; p=0.06) and were less likely to have dilated cardiomyopathy (11 vs 29%; p=0.02). One ...
Renal transplantation is the preferred option for the treatment of endstage chronic renal failure in patients for whom there are no major medical contraindications. In well-selected recipients, both life expectancy and quality of life are superior to treatment with long-term dialysis. However, as the dialysis population continues to grow, the gap between supply and demand for renal transplantation is widening. Attempts to bridge this gap have included (1) relaxation of the criteria for a suitable deceased donor (expanded/extended criteria or marginal donors); (2) reversion to the procurement of kidneys from donors with cardiac death (DCD donors, previously known as non-heart beating donors); and (3) encouragement of living donation-including techniques for desensitization of recipients, also paired exchanges, both to circumvent blood group incompatibilities or preformed antibodies that would otherwise bar transplantation....
Blood group incompatibility (Rh or ABO problems): if a baby has a different blood type than the mother, the mother might produce antibodies that destroy the infants red blood cells. This creates a sudden buildup of bilirubin in the babys blood. Incompatibility jaundice can begin as early as the first day of life. Rh problems once caused the most severe form of jaundice, but now can be prevented with an injection of Rh immune globulin to the mother within 72 hours after delivery, which prevents her from forming antibodies that might endanger any subsequent babies ...

This special issue of Stem Cells International focuses on the potential applications of amniotic cells in regenerative therapies to repair tissues and organs that have been damaged by trauma, disease, or aging. Amniotic cell populations have historically included cells in amniotic fluid that have been sloughed from external and internal surfaces of the developing fetus and potentially from the amnion, the innermost extraembryonic membrane of the amniotic sac. Amniotic fluid is recovered by amniocentesis, a technique that was initially used to assess fetal health in cases of Rh blood group incompatibility [1] and to determine the sex of the fetus by the presence or absence of the Barr body in amniotic cells [2, 3]. These pioneering studies [4] provided accessible methods for ex vivo culture of amniotic cells as a source of normal, rather than transformed cancer cells for biomedical research. Fauza and colleagues [5] were among the first to explore use of amniotic cells for tissue engineering and ...

Because very young children (generally under 12 months, but often as old as 24 months[2]) do not have a well-developed immune system,[3] it is possible for them to receive organs from otherwise incompatible donors. This is known as ABO-incompatible (ABOi) transplantation. Graft survival and patient mortality is approximately the same between ABOi and ABO-compatible (ABOc) recipients.[4] While focus has been on infant heart transplants, the principles generally apply to other forms of solid organ transplantation.[2]. The most important factors are that the recipient have not produced isohemagglutinins, and that they have low levels of T cell-independent antigens.[3][5] UNOS regulations allow for ABOi transplantation in children under two years of age if isohemagglutinin titers are 1:4 or below,[6][7] and if there is no matching ABOc recipient.[6][7][8] Studies have shown that the period under which a recipient may undergo ABOi transplantation may be prolonged by exposure to nonself A and B ...
TRALI most common cause of transfusion related mortality (Miller, 7th ed).. Acute hemolytic reaction. Definition: When antibodies to a particular blood antigen already exist. Can be delayed if there is an amnestic response to a transfused RBC antigen to which the recipient is already sensitized.. Causes: Usually the result of ABO incompatibility and technical errors made during the collection of blood.. Risks: The risk of acute hemolytic transfusion reaction due to incompatible blood is 1:4 per 1 million units transfused and has a high fatality rate.. Most of the transfused cells are destroyed which can activate the coagulation system with DIC and release of anaphylotoxins and other vasoactive amines. Patients might present with back pain, pain at site of transfusion, headache, change in vital signs, pulmonary edema, bleeding, new/worsening renal failure.. ...
Results In total of 58 cases NJ {28 (2015), 30 (2016)}, the 40 were males (69%). They were categorised by the GA in near-term (35-37 w), full-term (,38w) and premature (,35w) newborns (51,5%, 45%, 3,5%, respectively). Comparing the BW,∼2/3 of newborns, who had jaundice were,3000 gr, while the percentage, based on the day of life, where hyperbilirubinemia occured, ranged as follows: 1 st day of life: 6.9%, 2nd day: 12%, 3rd day : 31%,,4 th day: 50%. In 1/3 of cases (∼36%) the cause of NJ was not clarified, while 24% was attributed to ABO group incompatibility and∼14% to perinatal infection (early-onset form: 87.5%). In the percentage of∼26% of NJ, were included more than one risk-factors. They treated with fototherapy (single and/or double), lasting 5-50 hours, good hydration and appropriate antibiotic treatment (in cases of infection). Two newborns were transferred to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, of the Tertiary Hospital in Thessaly, for further investigation/treatment. ...
In rare cases, transplants between a donor and recipient who have different blood types may occur by using medications to reduce the chance of a reaction. This is called ABO-incompatible transplantation.. • Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA) and Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA): These tests help determine the likelihood of success of an organ transplant by checking for antibodies in your childs blood. Antibodies are made by the bodys immune system in reaction to a foreign substance, such as a blood transfusion, a virus, or a transplanted organ, and women may also develop antibodies during pregnancy. Antibodies in the bloodstream will try to attack transplanted organs, therefore, people who receive a transplant must take medications called immunosuppressants that decrease this immune response. • Viral Studies: These tests determine if your child has been exposed to viruses that may recur after transplant and help us to tailor your childs medication regimen after transplant. Diagnostic tests that ...

Blood group incompatibility between Henry VIII and his wives could have driven the Tudor kings reproductive woes, and a genetic condition related to his suspected blood group could also explain Henrys dramatic mid-life transformation into a physically and mentally impaired tyrant who executed two of his wives.. Research conducted by bioarchaeologist Catrina Banks Whitley while she was an SMU graduate student and anthropologist Kyra Kramer shows that the numerous miscarriages suffered by Henrys wives could be explained if the kings blood carried the Kell antigen.. A Kell negative woman who has multiple pregnancies with a Kell positive man can produce a healthy, Kell positive child in a first pregnancy. But the antibodies she produces during that first pregnancy will cross the placenta and attack a Kell positive fetus in subsequent pregnancies.. As published in The Historical Journal (Cambridge University Press), the pattern of Kell blood group incompatibility is consistent with the ...

Background ABO blood group-incompatible (ABOi) kidney transplantation is considered a safe procedure, with non-inferior outcomes in large cohort studies. Its contribution to living kidney transplantation programs is substantial and growing. The objective of this meta-analysis was to systematically investigate outcomes in ABO-incompatible kidney transplant recipients compared to center-matched ABO blood group-compatible (ABOc) control patients.. Methods Comprehensive searches were conducted in Embase, Medline, Cochrane, Web-of-Science and Google Scholar. MOOSE study guidelines for observational studies and Newcastle Ottawa bias scale were implemented to assess studies. Meta-analysis was performed using Review Manager 5.3. A subgroup analysis on antibody removal technique was performed.. Results After identifying 2728 studies addressing ABOi kidney transplantation, 26 studies were included, describing 1346 unique ABOi patients and 4943 ABOc controls. Baseline patient characteristics revealed no ...
ABO-incompatible living related kidney transplantation (ABO-iLKT) has increased the possibilities for kidney transplantation in patients with end stage renal disease. Due to advancements in immunosuppressive agents and the identification of immunological conditions following ABO-iLKT, this transplantation technique has achieved the same success rate as ABO-compatible LKT. However, some patients continue to generate anti-blood type antibodies, despite conventional immunosuppressant treatment. A 60-year-old man was referred to our hospital for kidney transplantation. The proposed transplant was ABO incompatible, from a donor with blood-type A to a recipient with blood-type O. The recipients anti-A blood-type IgG antibody titer was measured at 4096-fold dilution. Following desensitization therapy, including mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) 750 mg/day for 3 months, intravenous Rituximab 200 mg, and two sessions of double filtration plasmapheresis, the anti-A blood-type IgG antibody titer decreased to only 516
Although the mechanism of post-transplant PRCA is not fully understood, it is believed that the persistence of host B lymphocytes or plasma cells producing anti-donor isoagglutinins is responsible for the delayed engraftment.12 In support of this hypothesis, autologous plasma derived from patients with PRCA inhibits donor-type erythropoiesis in vitro.18-20 In contrast, early erythroid progenitors can engraft at the same rate as myeloid progenitors measured by erythroid burst forming unit assays, indicating that ABO antigens are acquired at a later stage of erythroid commitment.21 Moreover, mixed chimerism analyses of hematopoietic cells after HSCT demonstrated temporal differences in the post-transplant eradication of recipient cells with a persistence of plasma cells for up to 9 months.12. In the present study the overall incidence of post-transplant PRCA was 8% and this complication occurred after major but not bidirectional ABO incompatible HSCT. The only two risk factors identified were a ...
The impact of ABO incompatibility on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) outcome is controversial. As ABH substances are expressed on tissues and secreted in body fluids, they could drive an immune response in minor ABO-incompatible HSCT. The aim of the study was to investigate the prognostic role of the recipients ABH secretor status.; Patients who underwent minor ABO-incompatible HSCT were included. Secretor status was determined either serologically or by molecular genetics.; Between March 1996 and June 2012, a total of 176 patients received minor ABO-incompatible HSCT and 150 (85%) were secretors. Incidence and severity of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and chronic GVHD did not differ between secretors and nonsecretors (cumulative incidences ± standard errors: acute GVHD on Day 100, 41 ± 11 and 46 ± 5%, p = 0.59; chronic GVHD at 2 years, 52 ± 13 and 56 ± 5%, p = 0.62, for secretors and nonsecretors, respectively). Additionally, nonrelapse mortality (NRM) and overall ...
BACKGROUND: Delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) can manifest with hyperhemolysis, a serious complication of red blood cell (RBC) transfusions. This has mostly been described in sickle cell anemia but occasionally in beta-thalassemia. Treatment is challenging; immunosuppressive medication has been reported to be useful by some but not others., CASE REPORT: A 1.5-year-old girl with homozygous beta-thalassemia was put on a regular RBC transfusion program because of anemia with stunted growth and abnormal bone development. After the first transfusion she developed DHTR with hyperhemolysis. Further RBC transfusions could not be avoided. Despite treatment with prednisone, immunoglobulins, rituximab, and azathioprine hemolysis continued. She received an allogeneic bone marrow transplantation after conditioning using cyclophosphamide, treosulfan, melfalan, and ATG. The transplantation was followed by treatment with cyclosporin A, methotrexate, and prednisone. Because of poor engraftment and ...
ABO incompatibility is the most common cause of donor rejection during the initial screening of adult patients with end-stage liver disease for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). A paired donor exchange program was initiated to cope with this problem without ABO-incompatible LDLT. We present our results from the first 6 years of this exchange adult LDLT program. Between July 2003 and June 2009, 1351 adult LDLT procedures, including 16 donor exchanges and 7 ABO-incompatible LDLT procedures, were performed at our institution. Initial donor-recipient ABO incompatibilities included 6 A to B incompatibilities, 6 B to A incompatibilities, 1 A to O incompatibility, 1 A+O (dual graft) to B incompatibility, 1 O to AB incompatibility, and 1 O to A incompatibility. Fourteen matches (87.5%) were ABO incompatible, but 2 (12.5%) were initially ABO-compatible. All ABO-incompatible donors were directly related to their recipients, but 2 compatible donors were each undirected and unrelated directed. ...

Blood is classified into four different types: A, B, AB, and O.. Another way blood cells may be classified is by Rh factors. People who have Rh factors in their blood are called Rh positive. People without these factors are called Rh negative. Rh negative people form antibodies against Rh factor if they receive Rh positive blood.. There are also other factors to identify blood cells, in addition to ABO and Rh.. Your immune system can usually tell its own blood cells from those of another person. If you receive blood that is not compatible with your blood, your body produces antibodies to destroy the donors blood cells. This process causes the transfusion reaction. Blood that you receive in a transfusion must be compatible with your own blood. This means that your body does not have antibodies against the blood you receive ...
Background: Graft immunocomplex capture fluorescence analysis (ICFA) is an attractive method to detect intra-graft donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (HLA-DSA). In ABO incompatible (ABOi) transplantation, anti-A/B antibodies are also considered as important DSA (ABO-DSA). Thereupon, it is also useful to monitor intra-graft ABO-DSA to assess AMR by applying the ICFA technique.. Methods: To capture A/B antigens, anti-Band III, VW, and PLVAP beads were composed. The allograft specimen was dissolved in PBS by the lysis buffer. Anti A/B antibodies were added for a positive control sample. Subsequently, A/B antigens were captured by anti-Band III, VW, or PLVAP beads. Then, the immune complexes were detected by anti-human IgG antibodies (PE), analyzed by a Luminex system.. Results: Although Band III and VW beads indicated false-positive/negative, PLVAP beads were capable to capture A/B antigens with high sensitivity and specificity (,95%) provided that a ratio (sample/blank beads MFI) ,1.0 was ...

Michael Breimer started his research in the Department of Medical and Physiological Chemistry isolating and structurally characterising blood group AB(O)H and related carbohydrate antigens. After his PhD examination, his biochemical studies relating to ABO-incompatible organ transplantation continued in the Department of Surgery. Studies of human kidneys/urinary tract revealed that human kidney contained a new type of blood group A structure. Blood group phenotypes relating to expression of ABO antigens in individual kidneys were identified. Based on A antigen expression, a hypothesis explaining why blood group A2 kidneys could be successfully transplanted to O recipients was postulated. Patients receiving ABO-incompatible kidney grafts were shown to elicit an individual specific response regarding antibody class and subclass. He was responsible for the clinical evalutation of a new blood group A/B saccharide-based immunoadsorption column. These results have been applied in clinical practice to ...
