What does it mean to have 3 out of 6 genetics markers when getting test results as a kidney donor?

What does it mean to have 3 out of 6 genetics markers when getting test results as a kidney donor?

Variable: Hla antigens are a major factor that drives the rejection response to transplant organs. Matching refers to the number of hla antigens identified in recipients and donors; and how many are the same. Commonly six antigens; two for hla a, two for hla b, and two for hla dr are typed matched for kidney transplant. So a 3/6 match means half the hla antigens are the same. ...Read more

What does it mean to have 3/6 genetics markers when getting test results for being a kidney donor?

What does it mean to have 3/6 genetics markers when getting test results for being a kidney donor?

That u r a 1/2 match: We each inherit one set of three human leukocyte antigens (hla) from each parent; thus, we each have 6 of these. The more hla matching between donor and recipient of the kidney, the closer the match, the less likely is rejection and less anti-rejection drugs need be used. The best match is 6/6, the worst is 0/6. A half match is 3/6 genetic markers=possible donor. Transplant team will decide. ...Read more

Which additional tests do I require to be diagnosed with hep b? Last year i got HBsAG positive, DNA HBV negative results. Which other markers of HBV tests should I be tested for to know whether I am a carrier and can infect others?

There : There are a number of hepatitis b virus (hbv) markers that are used to determine whether one is actively infected, latently infected, immune, or vaccinated. Some are tests to detect antibody, for example, antibody to hbv surface antigen (sometime referred to as hbsab), antibody to the hbv core antigen (referred to as hbcab) [and a subset of the core antigen is the "e" antigen, so antibody to that is referred to as the hbeab]. Some tests detect part of the hbv itself, so the surface antigen is referred to as hbsag, the core antigen - hbcag, the e antigen - hbeag, or the dna itself or hbv dna. Hbsag can be detected in the blood from several weeks before onset of symptoms to months after onset. Hbsag is present in serum during acute infections and persists in chronic infections. The presence of hbsag indicates that the person is potentially infectious, regardless of the hbv dna level. Hepatitis b virus, hbv dna, hbcag and hbeag are also evidence of ongoing infection. The presence of hbeag is associated with relatively high infectivity and severity of disease. Anti-hbc is the first antibody to appear. Demonstration of anti-hbc in serum indicates hbv infection, current or past. Igm anti-hbc is present in high titre during acute infection and usually disappears within 6 months. Igg anti-hbc generally remains detectable for a lifetime. Anti-hbe appears after anti-hbc and its presence correlates to a decreased infectivity. Anti-hbe replaces hbeag in the resolution of the disease. Nowadays, hbv dna has often been used to replace testing for hbeag. Anti-hbs replaces hbsag as the acute hbv infection is resolving. Anti-hbs generally persists for a lifetime in over 80% of patients and indicates immunity. It is the only antibody which appears in normal patients who are vaccinated with the hbv vaccine. The presence of other antibodies suggest that the immunity was acquired thru a prior active infection rather than vaccination. ...Read more

A cancer blood marker test done, result is kidney not functioning great, &also potassium is high! also have spot above rt kidney on CT scan, .Possib?

Kidney cancer: There is no serum blood test to detect kidney cancer. In addition, patients with kidney cancer, depending on tumor location, usually have normal kidney function. The "spot" seen on ct was likely described by the radiologist with an impression of what that abnormality represents. You should discuss these findings with the doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more

CP test results reading this means what many phenotypic patterns have been described, including deficiency states with F, S, Z or other alles.

Unclear question: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, F,S and Z are types of alpha 1 antitrypsin. If the total level of the protein is normal, you do not need to worry about these types. ...Read more
