AM program publication among most downloaded

The joint 2019 ETRL/PROCARE publication on the Acceptable Mismatch (AM) program entitled “Allocation to highly sensitized patients based on acceptable mismatches results in low rejection rates comparable to nonsensitized patients” has been one of the most downloaded and read papers from the American Journal of Transplantation in 2018/2019.

The paper describes the incidence of rejection in the Dutch transplant cohort between 1995 and 2005 that have been transplanted through the AM progam. The results show that allocation based on acceptable antigens leads to relatively low-risk transplants for highly sensitized patients with rejection rates similar to those of non-immunized individuals. The publication is available Online Open from Wiley-Blackwell.
