ABO incompatible kidney transplants occur when the donor has a blood type that is not compatible with the recipient's blood type.

  • What is an ABO Incompatible Transplant?

    ABO incompatible kidney transplants occur when the donor has a blood type that is not compatible with the recipient’s blood type. An example would be if a recipient with blood type O. received a kidney from a donor with blood type A., B., or AB. Such transplants are typically unsuccessful due to severe rejection.

  • What is Desensitization?

    ABO incompatible kidney transplants have been successful when the recipient undergoes a process known as desensitization. Anti-ABO antibodies are removed from the recipient’s plasma by a process known as plasmapheresis. Recipients also must receive additional immunosuppression prior to such a transplant. Once the anti-ABO antibodies are reduced to a safe level, a transplant occurs with results not significantly different from compatible transplants..

  • Who is eligible for an ABO Incompatible Transplant?

    Unfortunately many patients with blood type O, who need a kidney transplant cannot find a compatible donor through this program and may wait many years for a deceased donor kidney transplant:
