Abstract

A series of HL-A defined, nonrelated blood transfusions given in small aliquots from the same donor to prospective cadaveric and living-related donor recipients has been presented. The results to date show 100% kidney survival in this small series over a relatively short period of time. The rejections noted have been very mild, and easily reversed. Nonspecific antibodies appear to be produced by the recipients in response to the blood, and these antibodies seem to have no negative effect upon kidney survival. This method of small aliquot transfusion to produce the desired effect is cheaper, wastes less blood, is less likely to lead to a CMV or HAA infestation in the transfusion recipient, and appears to be a highly efficient method of producing the desired effect.
