HLA "potential" incompatible

Hi all, I have a kidney donor and we have been cleared/matched for transplant later this year.  Coordinator called and stated that I have 2 "potential" antibodies to donors antigens, and that I should go NOW with tx instead of waiting because I could develop antibodies and then could NOT do the tx.  I am confused, please send any information, as I am thinking if I develop these won't I reject down the road?? any info, articles, etc appreciated. J.

  • Hi Jane,

    After a Tx, you will be immunosuppressed and the medications you take should prevent the development of any new antibodies.  These powerful meds keep the immune system from "finding" the Tx organ.  I added  a link to the National Kidney Foundation site to help answer some questions.  You can always ask your friends here about any other issues.  Good luck!
