Abstract

We recently reported 8–12 yr follow-up studies of the earliest renal transplant recipients at the Medical College of Virginia (44). At a mean follow-up of 10 yr, about 50% of these early transplant recipients are alive, all with functioning kidneys. Tissue typing was not available when these patients were transplanted and retrospective typing has shown that most patients were non HL-A identical with their recipients. Therefore, the immunological mechanisms which permitted successful transplantation for a decade or longer are of great interest.
