(July 28 issue)(1) report a significant survival benefit for HLA-incompatible living-donor kidney recipients after they had undergone desensitization, as compared with patients who were receiving dialysis while on a waiting list for renal transplantation. Although these findings are an important benchmark for patient outcomes after desensitization, potential differences in allocation policies and different rates of death while receiving dialysis should be considered in order to apply the results to clinical practice outside the United States. Therefore, we examined the survival rate of highly sensitized kidney recipients who were treated with an alternative approach: namely, . . .
