A new meta-analysis shows a strong association between low levels of preformed donor-specific HLA antibodies (DSAs) detected using sensitive solid-phase assays and an increased risk of renal allograft failure. These findings have important implications for stratifying patients with DSAs for organ allocation and for the use of alloantigen desensitization therapies.
