Matched Control Subjects To determine whether desensitization provided a survival benefit, we performed a matched control evaluation with deidentified sufferers drawn from the United Network for Organ Sharing kidney-transplant waiting around list. For each affected person in the group that underwent desensitization and transplantation , on the day of the receipt of the incompatible transplant , we determined the five patients on the UNOS waiting list who were the majority of closely matched. The %age of panel-reactive antibodies was matched as follows: for individuals with a panel-reactive antibody degree of 0 percent or 100 percent, a control subject matter with the same panel-reactive antibody level was identified; for patients with a level ranging from 98 to 99 percent or from 95 to 97 percent, a control subject matter with a known level in the same range was identified; for patients with a level ranging from 85 to 94 percent, 65 to 84 percent, or 1 to 64 percent, a control subject matter with a panel-reactive antibody level within 2, 5, or 10 points, respectively, of the antibody level in the study patient was identified.
