Over a 2 1/2-year period, prospective standard, T, and B lymphocyte crossmatches were performed in 45 cadaver renal transplants using the microlymphocytotoxicity technique. Twenty-three of the 45 recipients had a positive B lymphocyte crossmatch. Cumulative graft survival rates did not differ between recipients with a positive and negative B lymphocyte crossmatch. High levels of presensitization in routine lymphocytotoxic antibody screening or transplant number did not adversely affect graft survival in recipients with a positive B lymphocyte crossmatch. Five recipients had moderately positive standard crossmatches which were attributable to anti-B lymphocytotoxicity. Four of these five grafts are presently functioning with normal serum creatinine levels 9 to 14 months post-transplant. A positive B lymphocyte crossmatch is compatible with good long-term cadaveric renal allograft survival. In addition, a weakly positive standard crossmatch is not a contraindication to transplantation when the positive crossmatch is attributable to anti-B lymphocyte antibody.
