Eculizumab is a monoclonal antibody that prevents complement activation. It has been found to be an effective treatment for atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (aHUS). This retrospective study is the largest collection of previously published and unpublished cases to date. Eculizumab was effective at both preventing and treating recurrence of aHUS.

Preventing the development of anti-HLA antibodies is an important step in improving access to transplantation. In this non-randomized retrospective study, patients who received red blood cell transfusions from donors who were closely matched for class I antigens were less likely to develop anti-HLA antibodies than patients who received randomly selected donors. These findings are intriguing, […]

Most registries show worse outcomes with pancreas-after-kidney (PAK) compared to simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplants. In this single-centre, retrospective study, living donor renal transplants followed by pancreas transplants showed comparable results to SPK, despite the long time between kidney and pancreas transplants. Greater use of PAK may shorten time of dialysis for patient with a living […]
