Abstract

The authors' investigations suggested that prior transfusions with specific blood from a preselected renal allograft donor should be avoided because of the risk of sensitization. Although the opposite effect may occur, as long as this remains a matter of chance, deliberate transfusion with donor specific blood cannot be justified. The results of animal experiments support a policy of blood transfusions from nonspecific donors in patients prior to transplantation.
