At the 25th DTG (Deutsche Transplantationsgesellschaft) annual meeting in Essen, Germany, the poster titled “De novo donor-specific HLA antibodies after kidney transplantation are correlated with the number of predicted indirectly recognizable epitopes” was awarded with a poster prize. Nils Lachmann and his team of co-authors proved previous findings of Eric Spierings’ working group, that increased numbers of PIRCHE correlate with the development of de novo donor specific antibodies after kidney transplantation – a major cause of long term kidney failure.
