Nowadays the most important problem in kidney transplantation is highly sensitized patients. This means, patients who are PRA positive.

PRA positive patients have some HLA antibodies in their blood due to blood transfusions, prior transplantations and pregnancy which may lead to graft loss after transplantation. So, these patients have higher risk than the normal population. The most significant advance in successfully treating highly sensitized patients has been the development of desensitization therapy strategies. There are well known 2 therapy strategies in the world right now and we are using one of these modalities with great success. So that’s why, nowadays PRA positive patients who are immunologically high-risk patients have a chance to undergo successful kidney transplantation.
