Acute Cellular and Antibody-Mediated Rejection of the Pancreas Allograft: Incidence, Risk Factors and Outcomes

Antibody-mediated pancreas transplant rejection is a relatively recently recognized entity. In this retrospective study, the rate of antibody-mediated rejection post-pancreas transplant was similar to that of acute cellular rejection. Class I DSA were more predictive of antibody-mediated rejection than class II DSA. Antibody-mediated rejection should be considered in all patients with pancreas graft dysfunction post-transplant.
