Background. One of the most important mechanisms of allograft rejection is the production of donor-specific antibodies (DSA). Anti-major histocompatibility complex class-I chain-related antigen A (MICA) and anti-glutathione S transferase-T1 (GSTT1) antibodies cause graft dysfunction and reduce graft survival. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of anti-human leukocyte antigen class I-II, anti-MICA, and anti-GSTT1 antibodies in development of antibody-mediated rejection.
