Donor-Recipient: These are all methods of determining compatibility between donor and recipient with organ and tissue transplants.

To help prevent rejection (which can be life-threatening) we try to make sure the markers are alike as possible in both people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In the arena of stem: Cell transplantation this is more defined than in the past. Class one match (hla a, b and c) and class two (hla dr and dq) are all performed at high resolution (gene level tryping). The best match with all loci evaluated will produce the lowest chance of graft rejection. Mis-match can be assessed in the gvhd and host vs graft (rejection) direction. ...Read more

Not needed: It requires no cure. Hla-b27 is a marker protein present in patients with certain diseases but it is also present in healthy individuals. Having a positive hla-b27 does not diagnose any disease. It should only be run in cases where there is suspicion of a particular disease in which case it can assist in making a diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tissue antigens.: The human leukocyte antigen (hla) system is the name of the major histocompatibility complex (mhc) in humans, which contains genes related to immune system function in humans. This group of genes resides on chromosome 6 and encodes cell-surface antigen-presenting proteins. They are important in disease defense and can be the cause of organ transplant rejections, hence tissue typing. ...Read more
