Streptokinase is used for preflush for non-heart-beating donors (NHBDs) in our center. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the use of thrombolytic streptokinase results in the production of anti-streptokinase antibodies in the recipients after renal transplantation. Recipient sera taken prior to and at 1 and 6 months posttransplant were tested for the presence of antibodies to streptokinase using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay assay. No differences were detected between a group of 18 recipients who had kidneys from thrombolytic-treated NHBDs and a further group of 18 who received NHBD kidneys without such treatment. © 2005 by Elsevier Inc.
