ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the prognostic utility of LifePort perfusion parameters plus perfusate biomarkers for predicting delayed graft function(DGF)and recovery time during deceased donor kidney transplantation(KT).Methods:From January 1, 2019 to August 31, 2019, retrospective analysis was performed for clinical data of 113 KT recipients. Based upon whether or not DGF occurred within 3 months, they were divided into two groups of DGF group(20 cases)and non-DGF (93 cases). Two groups were compared using LifePort perfusion parameters, biomarker concentrations, incidence of DGF and kidney recovery time. Statistical analysis was performed.Results:The incidence of DGF was 17.7%(20/113); Multivariate Logistic regression results indicated that terminal resistance(OR 1.879, 95% CI 1.145~3.56)and glutathione S-transferase(GST)(OR 1.62, 95% CI 1.23~2.46)were independent risk factors for DGF; Cox hazard model revealed that terminal resistance was a risk factor for recovery time of renal function(HR=0.823, 95% CI 0.735~0.981). The model combining terminal resistance and GST(AUC=0.888, 95% CI 0.842~0.933)significantly improved the predictive efficacy for DGF as compared with using terminal resistance(AUC=0.756, 95% CI 0.693~0.818)or GST alone(AUC=0.729, 95% CI 0.591~0.806).Conclusions:Combining LifePort perfusion parameters and fluid biomarkers can improve the predictive utility of DGF.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the clinical data of acute rejection in kidney transplant recipients of different ages with elderly donor kidneys.Methods:During January 2012 and June 2020, a retrospective review was conducted for clinical data of 298 recipients undergoing kidney transplantation from elderly donors aged ≥60 years after citizen's death.According to the age, recipients were divided into group A(age<30 yr, 59 cases), group B(30~39 yr, 125 cases), group C(40~49 yr, 83 cases)and group D(age≥50 yr, 31 cases). The incidence of acute rejection(AR)was analyzed.Also based upon age difference between donors and recipients, they were divided into two groups of(30~39 yr)and (40~49 yr)and the occurrence of AR was recorded.Results:The incidence of AR within 1 year post-transplantation in groups A, B, C, and D were 15.3%(9/59), 8.8%(11/125), 7.2%(6/83) and 3.2%(1/31)respectively.The incidence of AR in age difference≥25 yr group(12.5%)and age difference <25 yr group(5.3%) had significant difference( P<0.05). The proportion and absolute value of peripheral blood lymphocytes in each group at 1 week/month post-transplantation had significant difference( P<0.05). No significant difference was observed in serum level of creatinine(SCr), the incidence of pulmonary infection and urinary tract infection or the survival rate of recipients and transplanted kidneys in each group within 1 year post-transplantation among four groups( P>0.05). Conclusions:Elderly donor kidneys can obtain better transplant outcomes in kidney transplant recipients of different ages.As the age of recipients decreases, AR shows an upward trend.Clinicians should pay more attention to the prevention and treatment of AR in recipients with large age difference between donors and recipients.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Delayed graft function (DGF) is the main cause of renal function failure after kidney transplantation. This study aims at investigating the value of hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) parameters combined with perfusate biomarkers on predicting DGF and the time of renal function recovery after deceased donor (DD) kidney transplantation.@*METHODS@#HMP parameters, perfusate biomarkers and baseline characteristics of 113 DD kidney transplantations from January 1, 2019 to August 31, 2019 in the First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University were retrospectively analyzed using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis.@*RESULTS@#In this study, the DGF incidence was 17.7% (20/113); The multivariate logistic regression results showed that terminal resistance (OR: 1.879, 95% CI 1.145-3.56) and glutathione S-transferase (GST)(OR = 1.62, 95% CI 1.23-2.46) were risk factors for DGF; The Cox model analysis indicated that terminal resistance was an independent hazard factor for renal function recovery time (HR = 0.823, 95% CI 0.735-0.981). The model combining terminal resistance and GST (AUC = 0.888, 95% CI: 0.842-0.933) significantly improved the DGF predictability compared with the use of terminal resistance (AUC = 0.756, 95% CI 0.693-0.818) or GST alone (AUC = 0.729, 95% CI 0.591-0.806).@*CONCLUSION@#According to the factors analyzed in this study, the combination of HMP parameters and perfusate biomarkers displays a potent DGF predictive value.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To summarize the patient profiles and therapeutic efficacies of ABO-incompatible living-related kidney transplantations at 19 domestic transplant centers and provide rationales for clinical application of ABOi-KT.Methods:Clinical cases of ABO-incompatible/compatible kidney transplantation (ABOi-KT/ABOc-KT) from December 2006 to December 2009 were collected. Then, statistical analyses were conducted from the aspects of tissue matching, perioperative managements, complications and survival rates of renal allograft or recipients.Results:Clinical data of 342 ABOi-KT and 779 ABOc-KT indicated that (1) no inter-group differences existed in age, body mass index (BMI), donor-recipient relationship or waiting time of pre-operative dialysis; (2) ABO blood type: blood type O recipients had the longest waiting list and transplantations from blood type A to blood type O accounted for the largest proportion; (3) HLA matching: no statistical significance existed in mismatch rate or positive rate of PRA I/II between two types of surgery; (4) CD20 should be properly used on the basis of different phrases; (5) hemorrhage was a common complication during an early postoperative period and microthrombosis appeared later; (6) no difference existed in postoperative incidence of complications or survival rate of renal allograft and recipients at 1/3/5/10 years between ABOi-KT and ABOc-KT. The acute rejection rate and serum creatinine levels of ABOi-KT recipients were comparable to those of ABOc-KT recipients within 1 year.Conclusions:ABOi-KT is both safe and effective so that it may be applied at all transplant centers as needed.

ABSTRACT

Objective To compare the clinical efficacy of different T lymphocyte polyclonal antibodies in renal transplantation from donor kidney of organ donation after citizen's death. Methods Clinical data of 691 donors and recipients undergoing renal transplantation from donor kidney of organ donation after citizen's death were retrospectively analyzed. According to different T lymphocyte polyclonal antibodies used for induction, all recipients were divided into the rabbit anti human T lymphocyte immunoglobulin (rALG) group (n=414) and rabbit anti human thymocyte immunoglobulin (rATG) group (n=277). The recovery of renal graft function in recipients of the two groups were collected, including the incidence of delayed graft function (DGF) and acute rejection (AR), and the changes of serum creatinine level after renal transplantation. The 1-year survival rate of the recipients and renal grafts was collected. The incidence of adverse effects within 1 year after operation was calculated. According to the DGF risk score of donors, all recipients were divided into 5 groups. The use proportion of rALG and rATG in the recipients of each group was calculated. Results The incidence of DGF in the recipients of rALG and rATG groups was 14.5% (60/414) and 11.9% (33/277), respectively. The duration of DGF in the recipients of rALG and rATG groups was (7±4) d and (12±7) d respectively, with no statistically significant difference between two groups (P > 0.05). The incidence of AR in the rALG group was 7.5% (31/414), significantly higher than 4.0% (11/277) in the rATG group (P < 0.05). The serum creatinine levels of recipients within 6 months after renal transplantation tended to gradually decline in both groups. In renal transplantation for donor kidney with a DGF risk score of 0-15, the use proportion of rALG was significantly higher than that of rATG. However, the use proportion of rATG was significantly higher than that of rALG in renal transplantation for donor kidney with a DGF risk score over 16 (P < 0.05). The 1-year survival rates of the recipients and renal grafts in the rALG and rATG groups were 99.8% and 99.6%, 98.1% and 98.2%, respectively. There was no significant difference between two groups (both P > 0.05). The incidence of acute pulmonary edema and leukopenia in the recipients of rATG group was significantly higher than that in the rALG group (both P < 0.05). Conclusions Both rALG and rATG can effectively reduce the incidence of DGF and AR and achieve good clinical efficacy after renal transplantation from donor kidney of organ donation after citizen's death. The incidence of leukopenia and acute pulmonary edema induced by rATG is higher than that by rALG in the renal transplant recipients.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the prediction efficiency of scoring models at home and abroad on delayed graft function (DGF) after renal transplantation in China. Methods The clinical data of 112 donors and 220 recipients undergoing renal transplantation were prospectively analyzed. The DGF predicted by KDRI model, Jeldres model, and model of our center was compared with actual DGF incidence of renal transplant recipients. The prediction efficiency of each model was analyzed. The predictive accuracy was compared by the area under curve (AUC) of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. Results The DGF incidence of 220 renal transplant recipients was 14.1% (31/220). DGF prediction using KDRI model showed that 41 cases were high risk donors, the AUC was 0.57, the sensitivity was 0.37, the specificity was 0.66, and the positive predictive value was 22%. DGF prediction using Jedres model showed that 22 cases were high risk recipients, the AUC was 0.56, the sensitivity was 0.13, the specificity was 0.92 and the positive predictive value was 20%. DGF prediction using the model of our center showed that 25 cases were high risk donors, the AUC was 0.80, the sensitivity was 0.53, the specificity was 0.84, the positive predictive value was 40%. Conclusions Compared with the KDRI and Jedres models, the prediction model of our center has higher AUC and sensitivity with a better prediction efficiency on DGF. Therefore, it is a suitable evaluation system of donors from donation after citizen's death in Chinese.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the clinical effect of hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) in the storage of renal grafts from deceased donor (DD) with high-risk delayed graft function (DGF). Methods Clinical data of 52 donors with high-risk DGF were collected in this prospective randomized controlled study. Two renal grafts from each donor were randomly divided into the HMP group (n=52) and static cold storage (SCS) group (n=52). In the HMP group, the renal grafts were stored by LifePort under HMP, whereas the renal grafts in the SCS group were preserved in University of Wisconsin solution (UW solution). The incidence of DGF and primary nonfunction (PNF) after renal transplantation was statistically compared between two groups. The recovery of renal graft function, the survival rates of the recipients and renal grafts within postoperative 1 year were observed in two groups. Results The incidence of DGF in the HMP group was 4%(2/52), significantly lower than 17% (9/52) in the SCS group (P < 0.05). No PNF was reported in the HMP group and 1 case of PND was noted in the SCS group, the difference was not statistically significant (P > 0.05). The recovery time of graft function of the recipients in the HMP and SCS groups were (7.2±0.6) d and (7.7±1.0) d with no statistical significance (P > 0.05). In the HMP group, the urine volume of the recipients on the day of operation, postoperative 1 and2 d was significantly larger than that in the SCS group (all P < 0.05). In the HMP group, the levels of serum creatinine at each time point after operation were significantly lower than those in the SCS group (all P < 0.05). The 1-year survival rates of the recipient and kidney were 98.1%, 92.3% and 100%, 96.2% in the HMP and SCS groups with no statistical significance (all P > 0.05). Conclusions HMP can significantly reduce the incidence of DGF after renal transplantation from DD with high-risk DGF and promote the early recovery of graft function.

ABSTRACT

Objective Hypothermic machine perfusion may improve the outcome after transplantation of kidney donated after citizen's death (DCD),but few powered prospective studies have been reported,especially in China.The aim is to compare hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) with simple cold storage (SCS) in Chinese DCD kidney transplantation,which can offer an optimal method for graft storage with better graft function and survival.Methods 54 kidney pairs from DCD donors were included in this controlled trial in one single center from December 2015 to March 2017.Every two kidneys from each DCD donor wavs randomly assigned to HMP and SCS group.One-year recipient and graft survival rate and endpoints containing the incidence of DGF,the duration of DGF,creatinine reduction ratio (CRR),estimated glomerular filtration rate (Egfr),primary non-function (PNF),acute rejection (AR),toxicity of the immunosuppressive drugs,nosocomial infections and the length of hospital stay were compared between HMP and SCS group.Results One-year recipient survival rate was 98.15 % and 96.23% after DCD transplant in HMP and SCS group,and one-year graft survival rate was 90.74% and 88.68%,respectively.DGF incidence was 9.62% in total DCD kidney transplant,8.00% in HMP group and 11.11% in SCS group,which was no difference in two groups.22 DCD was from expanded criteria donor (ECD) donation,DGF happened in 15.91% ECD kidney transplant.However,HMP reduced the incidence of DGF from 27.27% to 4.55% after ECD kidney transplant,which was significantly different (x2 =4.247,P =0.039).HMP group acquired significantly lower creatinine level (130.95 ± 46.60) μmol/L than SCS group (181.64 ± 72.94) μmol/L on day 14 after ECD transplant (t =-2.686,P =0.011).Conclusion There was a higher recipient and graft survival rate after DCD and ECD kidney transplant,which would be an effective method to expand donor pool for kidney transplant.HMP was not associated with lower DGF rate in DCD kidney transplant and more rapid recovery in early graft function.However,HMP preservation not only made renal function recover more rapidly but reduced the risk of DGF after ECD kidney transplant.

ABSTRACT

Objective To detect the expression of IL-17 in renal transplant recipients by Luminex and evaluate the relationship between the level of serum IL 17 and early acute renal allograft rejection.Methods 38 kidney transplant recipients and healthy controls (HC,healthy volunteers,n =20) were selected in this study from January 2009 to October 2011.All patients were divided into two groups according to their allograft outcome as acute rejection group (ARG,n-18) and non-rejection group (NRG,n=20).The expression of serum IL-17 was detected by Luminex technique in two groups of kidney transplant recipients and HC.To evaluate the correlation between the level of serum IL-17 and early acute renal allograft rejection.Results The mean level of IL-17 in all renal transplant recipients 1.3 ± 1.9 pg/ml at the pre-transplantation was significantly lower than that in HC (6.9± 8.5 pg/ml,t=3.968,P<0.001).The results highlighted that the level of serum IL-17 in ARG 3.4±5.8 pg/ml was significantly higher than that in NRG (0.5±0.4 pg/ml) on the 7th days post Kidney transplantation (post KTx,t=2.242,P =0.031).Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that the probability of rejectionfree survival in the higher levels group of IL-17 on the 7th days post-KTx was significant lower than that in the lower levels group (P<0.001).The results of receiver operating characteristic curve showed that the sensitivity and specificity of the combined IL-17 to predict acute rejection were 66.67% and 100%,respectively.Conclusion The serum IL-17 levels in renal transplant recipients on the 4th and 7th post-KTx days can predict early renal transplant rejection.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the effects of IL-10/TGF-β-modified macrophages on renal ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI).Methods Bone marrow-derived macrophages were modified ex vivo by IL-10/TGF-β to acquire M2c (a subset of activated macrophages).M2c were transferred into treated C57BL/6 mice by a single tail-vein injection at 6 h after renal IRI.Mice were killed on the day 3 after renal IRI.Blood samples were collected to check renal function.Kidneys were harvested to determine tubular necrosis and apoptosis by H&E staining and TUNEL assay.Immunofluorescence was performed to analyze the proliferating tubular cell nuclear antigen.Meanwhile,proinflammatory cytokines and regulatory T cells in renal tissues were analyzed with real-time PCR and flow cytometry.Results In comparison with M1,M2c expressed lower levels of MHC Ⅱ (P<0.01),CD86 (P< 0.01),TNFα (P<0.01) and IL-1β (P<0.01) and higher level of IL-10 (P<0.01).M2c significantly attenuated renal functional decline (P<0.01 or 0.05),structural injury (P<0.05),apoptosis of tubular cells (P<0.01) and inflammation factors infiltration (P<0.01 or 0.05).What's more,the cells could promote tubular cells proliferation (P<0.05) and regulatory T cells expression (P<0.01).Conclusion Our results demonstrated that M2c macrophages effectively protect against renal IRI and may become a therapeutic strategy for renal IRI.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the significance of serum CD30 in predicting acute rejection in kidney transplant recipients.Method A total of 106 kidney transplant recipients were recruited in this prospective six months follow-up study from December 2010 to October 2012.According to the clinical outcome,the subjects were devided into stable renal function group (72 cases) and acute rejection group (34 cases).Twenty healthy subjects were choosed as controls.Serum sCD30 levels were detected by ELISA.The whole peripheral blood samples were collected from all recipients before transplantation,at days 7,14,21 and 28 post-transplantation,and at months 2,3,4,5 and 6 posttransplantation.Additional blood samples were collected for on the days that acute rejection occurred and reversed.Result Preoperative serum sCD30 levels were 33.42 ± 11.49 and 26.5 1 ± 13.70μg/L in AR group and stable group respectively.When acute rejection occurred,serum sCD30 levels in AR group was 50.38 ± 12.10μg/L,which was significantly higher than stable group (20.03 ± 6.68μg/L,P<0.05) and healthy control group (13.57 ± 5.56 ng/L,P<0.05).After the anti-rejection therapy,serum sCD30 levels decreased to 15.31 ± 6.37μg/L,which was lower than that before the therapy started (50.38± 12.10 μg/L,P<0.05).Elevated preoperative serum sCD30 levels suggested a higher risk of acute rejection in kidney transplant recipients,with Cutoff values of 24.96 μg/L,and the sensitivity and specificity were 91.30% and 84.21% respectively.Conclusion Serum sCD30 levels can predict and assess the risks of rejection episodes in kidney transplant recipients.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the association of major histocompatibility complex class I chain related gene A (MICA) antibodies with acute rejection (AR), chronic rejection (CR) and renal function after renal transplantation.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Serum MICA antibodies were detected with ELISA before and after transplantation with also examinations of panel reactive antibodies (PRA), serum creatinine, urine, graft ultrasound, lymphocyte subsets and the pathology of graft biopsy. The study was carried out in two parts to monitor MICA antibodies in acute and chronic rejections after renal transplantation.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>In the first part of the study 18 of the 41 recipients experienced episodes of acute rejection, and the incidence rate was markedly higher in MICA(+) group than in MICA(-) group (P<0.05). Compared with the recipients with stable renal functions, the patients with acute graft rejection showed a significantly higher positivity rate of MICA antibodies. Postoperative MICA antibody monitoring showed that MICA antibody level increased gradually 2-3 days after the occurrence of acute rejection; anti-rejection treatment lowered serum creatinine to a normal level but MICA antibodies remained positive. In the second part, 21 of 40 patients had chronic graft rejection and showed significantly higher positivity rate of MICA than the patients with stable renal functions (P<0.05). In patients with chronic rejections, the serum creatinine levels were significantly higher in MICA(+) than in MICA(-) cases (P<0.05). Graft biopsy of all MICA(+) cases showed C4d deposition.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The status of MICA antibodies can predict the occurrence and treatment outcomes of acute rejection, and also as one of the major causes of chronic graft rejection, they affect the long-term survival of the renal grafts.</p>

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the risk factors affecting long-term survival of recipients and renal allografts.Methods From January 1979 to December 2001,the clinical data of 1380 renal allograft recipients were retrospectively analyzed.The clinical and complication data of kidney transplantation were reviewed.Thirteen relative factors were analyzed by SAS statistical software.A Kaplan-Meier rank analysis was used to estimate the 10-year allograft survival rate.Proportional hazards regression analysis (with Cox model) was used to assess and rank the relative risk of potential variable.Results (1) As of Dec.31,2001,utility visiting rate was 93.62%,989 recipients survived over 10 years.The complications were as follows:acute rejection (191 cases),infection (112 cases),liver damage (106 cases).The postoperational 10-year survival rate of recipients and renal allografts was 71.67% and 62.25% respectively.(2) CAN,acute rejection,DGF,infection,diabetic mellitus,PRA >10% and HLA mismatch>3 were the independent risk factors resulting in the reduced survival rate of the renal allografts (P<0.05).Immunosuppressive regimen with MMF could significantly increase long-term survival rate (P< 0.01); (3) The cardiocerebral vascular diseases,liver insufficiency,infection,tumor and diabetic mellitus were independent risk factors for long-term survival (P<0.01).Conclusion The ideal HLA match is the key step in increasing survival rate; Low dosage of calcineurin inhibitor with MMF and Pred is the ideal regimen of immunosuppressive therapy for long-term survival; active prevention and treatment of cardiocerebral vascular diseases/CAN,infection,diabetic mellitus,and tumor are the main points focused during the follow-up period.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the clinical significance of switch between ciclosporin A (CsA) and tacrolimus (TAC) in the triple immunosuppressive protocol including calcineurin inhibitors (CNI),mycophenolate mofetil (MMF),and prednisone (Pred) after renal transplantation.Methods The data of 148 patients with CNI switch were collected from Jan.2000 to Dec.2010,including 51patients with Tac switching to CsA (group A) and 97 patients with CsA switching to Tac (group B).The clinical indexes were analyzed by paired t-test.Results In group A,the serum creatinine,urea and blood glucose were significantly reduced,and hemoglobin,bilirubin,cholesterol significantly increased as compared with those before switch (P<0.05).In group B,the serum creatinine and urea began were significantly reduced from 4th and 2nd week respectively after switch (P<0.05).Platelet counts began significantly dropping from 20th week after switch (P<0.05).Albumin,globulin and bilirubin were significantly increased from 20th,12th and 36th week respectively after switch (P<0.05).Blood glucose and cholesterol were significantly decreased from 12th and 3rd week respectively after switch (P<0.05).The trough concentrations of CNI and MMF AUC kept stable before and after switch.Conclusion The renal function of all patients was improved to varying degrees by CNI switch between CsA and Tac no matter what reason.The switch of immunosuppressive agents has benefits to alleviate adverse reactions.
