This is an open-label, single arm trial in which patient who have ongoing antibody mediated rejection of a kidney transplant deemed refractory to maximal medical therapy are given the complement inhibitor C1-INH (Berinert) in an effort to protect the graft from ongoing antibody mediated injury. A maximum of 5 patients will be enrolled.

About one third of prospective kidney transplant recipients have antibodies in their blood directed against the tissues of their only available kidney donor. Recently, "desensitisation" tr...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety, effect, and pharmacology of C1 Esterase Inhibitor (human) in kidney transplant patients with Antibody-Mediated Rejection (AMR)...
Organ transplantation offers the only hope for a normal life for patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis (ESRD). For the highly-sensitized patient, patients with antibodies to hu...
Late antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) after kidney transplantation is defined as a separate rejection entity. So far, no appropriate treatment has been established for this rejection type...
The purpose of this study is to see how effective 2 drugs, irbesartan and pravastatin, are at slowing kidney transplant failure. Many kidney transplant patients have some type of chronic ...
With the currently available immunosuppression, severe T-cell mediated rejection has become a rare event. With the introduction of modern antibody-detection techniques, such as the L-SAB technology, a...
Presensitized kidney transplant recipients are at high-risk for early antibody-mediated rejection. We studied the impact of pre- and post-transplant donor-specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibo...
It is well known that pre-transplant B cell activating factor (BAFF) levels are associated with the development of de novo anti-HLA antibodies and antibody mediated rejection post-transplant. However,...
Apheresis-based desensitization allows for successful transplantation across major immunological barriers. For donor-specific antibody (DSA)- and/or crossmatch-positive transplantation, however, it ha...
Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) in cardiac transplant recipients is a serious form of rejection with adverse patient outcomes. The International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) has...
An immune response with both cellular and humoral components, directed against an allogeneic transplant, whose tissue antigens are not compatible with those of the recipient.
Fluorescent antibody technique for visualizing antibody-bacteria complexes in urine. The presence or absence of antibody-coated bacteria in urine correlates with localization of urinary tract infection in the kidney or bladder, respectively.
Those manifestations of the immune response which are mediated by antigen-sensitized T-lymphocytes via lymphokines or direct cytotoxicity. This takes place in the absence of circulating antibody or where antibody plays a subordinate role.
Antibody-mediated immune response. Humoral immunity is brought about by ANTIBODY FORMATION, resulting from TH2 CELLS activating B-LYMPHOCYTES, followed by COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION.
Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
