Abstract

Background. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) allo-immunization is caused by various events such as blood transfusions, pregnancies, or organ transplantations, which can lead to sensitization. In this retrospective study, we evaluated different sensitization models and their effects on panel-reactive antibody (PRA) profiles of renal transplantation candidates.
