Implications of the Kidd blood group system in renal transplantation

The association of the Kidd blood group system with hemolytic transfusion reactions and hemolytic disease of the newborn is well known. The Kidd antigens, which are localized to the HUT/UT-B urea transport protein, are found on red blood cells and the endothelial cells of the blood vessels of the medulla of the kidney. Recently it has been suggested that these antigens might play a role as minor histocompatibility antigens in renal transplantation. In the current case, the appearance of an anti

Ultrasound imaging as the basis of a clinical diagnosis of systemic bartonellosis in a patient after bone marrow transplantation. A case report

Infections in immunocompromised patients after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can have a severe and atypical course. Some opportunistic pathogens are difficult to detect in microbiological tests, and that is why treatment success depends on an accurate clinical diagnosis. This article presents a case of a 7-year-old girl with severe aplastic anemia treated with bone marrow transplantation with post-transplantation period complicated by persistent, hectic fever, with peak episodes of 39

Sonographic assessment of the prevalence and evolution of fluid collections as a complication of kidney transplantation

Aim of the study: The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence and evolution of perirenal fluid collections in a group of 488 patients who have undergone kidney transplantation. Material and methods: Sonographic documentation of 488 deceased-donor kidney recipients was evaluated for the prevalence of perirenal fluid collections and their evolution in time, depending on selected demographic features of the patients, time of detection, initial dimensions and precise position of the

Immune hemolytic anemia following heart-lung transplantation

Immune hemolytic anemia due to minor ABO incompatibility between recipient and donor is a well-recognized occurrence in kidney and liver transplantation. In some cases, the responsible antibodies have been shown to be derived from the donor passenger lymphocytes using Gm allotyping. We report a case of acute, transient hemolysis following heart-lung transplantation in which serologic and Gm allotype studies confirmed the etiology of hemolysis.

Donor origin Rh antibodies as a cause of significant hemolysis following ABO-identical orthotopic liver transplantation

A group A, D-positive patient underwent orthotopic liver transplantation from a group A, D-negative (cde/cde) donor. Anti-D and -E were eluted from the recipient’s red cells and were found in the recipient’s serum 13 days later, at which time significant hemolysis developed. These Rh antibodies appear to he secondary to passive transfer of sensitized donor lymphocytes, a rare finding following liver transplantation.

Her medical record showed that she had a history of multiple health issues and she had been the recipient of two previous renal transplants. The first renal transplantation occurred in 1993 and lasted 3 months before secondary rejection. In 1995, the patient underwent the second kidney transplantation, which lasted about 12 months

A 58-year-old man underwent autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for stage IVa mantle cell lymphoma. This procedure was complicated by failure to engraft, necessitating ongoing support with blood components. After a 2-month period of uneventful transfusion support, the patient experienced increasingly severe reactions with fever and evidence of

Although the intrinsically fragile nature of granulocytes contributes to the inherent challenges of granulocyte serology, several advances in laboratory procedures have improved detection of granulocyte antibodies. This review will provide a current perspective about the importance and use of granulocyte serology for detection of granulocyte antibodies that have significant medical effects.

The Transfusion Medicine service plays a key role in the care of patients in that they are expected to provide quality blood products and aid in clinical decision making. Issues

Alloimmunization by blood group antigens from bone allografts

The purpose of this report is to heighten awareness of the risk of blood group antigen sensitization following bone allografting. Two Rh-negative females of childbearing age developed multiple antibodies to Rh antigens following transplantation of bone from Rh-positive donors. A previous pregnancy and/or blood transfusions were ruled out as factors influencing the antibody production. It is postulated that red cells or red cell stroma in the allografts stimulated the antibody production

can occur via exposure to foreign (donor) RBC antigens through previous transfusions, transplants, or exposure to fetal RBCs during or after pregnancy. However, not all blood group antibodies are clinically significant. Clinically significant blood group antibodies can cause adverse events after blood component transfusion or transplantation and/or can cause hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn.

ABO serology in a case of persistent weak A in a recipient following a group O–matched unrelated bone marrow transplant

HLA-matched hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from red blood cell (RBC)-incompatible donors is not uncommon. The engraftment process following ABO-incompatible allogeneic HSCT results in the transition from patient blood group to donor blood group in the recipient. In contrast, most non-hematopoietic tissues retain expression of the patient’s original blood group for life, and these antigens may adsorb from the plasma onto the donor-derived RBCs. Correct serologic

Gammaherpesviruses can also be the cause of post-transplantation issues in patients on immunosuppressive drugs and EBV is known to induce severe clinical syndromes in people with specific genetic disorders.

Gene frequencies of the HPA-1 to 6 and Gov human platelet antigens in Thai blood donors

Human platelet alloantigens (HPA) are important in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), posttransfusion purpura (PTP), platelet transfusion refractoriness, passive alloimmune thrombocytopenia, and transplantation-associated alloimmune thrombocytopenia. Thus, HPA genotyping is essential in diagnosis and treatment. We analyzed HPA-1 to 6 and Gov alleles, using PCR with sequence specific primers (PCR-SSP) in 500 Thai blood donors who had been HLA class I antigen typed. HPA-4a was present

Development of anti-Bw6 reactivity in patients receiving r-GCSF: a preliminary report

Recombinant granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (r-GCSF) is used in autologous bone marrow/peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation (ABMT/PBPC) to shorten the period of neutropenia. As these patients require platelet transfusions, their sera may be monitored for the presence of platelet/human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies. Sera of some patients on r-GCSF (16 μg/kg/day) became difficult to evaluate in vitro for the presence of HLA and platelet antibodies because of apparently
