Brief Summary:

The study is a prospective observational mono center study

Primary objective :

Study the anti-HLA antibodies frequency preformed before liver transplantation and the kinetic of appearance of DSA and de novo complement-binding anti-HLA antibodies after liver transplantation.

Secondary objective :

  • Risk factor of de novo DSA appearance (Immunosuppressive therapy, liver aetiology)
  • Impact of DSA on:

    • Graft and patients survivals
    • Onset of allograft rejection (acute, late-onset, chronic)
    • Unexplained liver graft dysfunction
    • Unexplained liver enzymes abnormalities
    • Liver fibrosis development (liver stiffness study using fibroscan©)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence DSA positivity (or anti-HLA). [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
    The positivity is defined as a fluorescence ≥ 1000.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fluorescence quantification [ Time Frame: at 3 months, 1 year and 2 years after transplantation ]
  2. Presence of C1q binding-complement anti-HLA antibodies [ Time Frame: at 3 months, 1 year and 2 years after transplantation ]
