Core Tip Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) remains the backbone of human-leukocyte antigen (HLA) desensitization therapy and excellent outcomes with the addition of rituximab (anti-B cell) have been achieved. Bortezomib (anti-plasma cell) and eculizumab (complement inhibition) may be good adjuncts for patients who are broadly sensitized with strong, complement-fixing HLA antibodies. Excellent outcomes have been achieved in ABO incompatible transplantation with the combination of antibody removal, B cell depletion, and pre-transplant immunosuppression. Kidney paired donation has emerged as a reasonable alternative for programs who cannot provide desensitization or in conjunction with desensitization.
