“In the anguishing wait for a new kidney, tens of thousands of patients on waiting lists may never find a match because their immune systems will reject almost any transplanted organ.

Survival Benefit with Kidney Transplants from HLA-Incompatible Live Donors

“When a person receives an organ from someone else during transplant surgery, that person’s immune system may recognize that it is foreign. This is because the person’s immune system detects that the antigens on the cells of the organ are different or not “matched.” Mismatched organs, or organs that are not matched closely enough, can trigger a blood transfusion reaction or transplant rejection.”
