In this way, the aim of this study was to investigate the probability of finding an HLA matching donor for the next recipient in the kidney waiting-list base on the HLA frequencies in a Colombian population.
PCR--reverse dot blot analysis was used to diagnose [beta]-thalassemia, and short tandem repeat linkage analysis was used for HLA matching. The pregnant mother received amniocentesis for prenatal diagnosis of [beta]-thalassemia at 16 weeks of gestation.
(4) Another study examined the incidence of HCMV viremia after liver transplantation with the HLA matching influence, and found no association.
Transplanting kidneys on the basis of HLA matching is resulting in the inequitable allocation of the scarce organs African Americans and alternative allocation policies need to be studied, according to a new report.
HLA matching is important in tissue and organ transplants, as matched cells and tissues arc much less likely to be rejected by a recipient's body.

UCB transplantation requires less stringent HLA matching compared with bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell grafts [4] and thereby helps to overcome barriers to donor availability for many patients, and especially patients from ethnic minorities [5].
Cord blood (CB), in which stem cells are immunologically immature and thus require less rigorous HLA matching, can be used for HSCT when there isn't an adequately matched donor available.
Securing an HLA matched embryo requires the performance of at least two interrelated medical processes: in vitro fertilization ("IVF") and PGD with HLA matching. (19) The first step in the process, IVF, is typically employed as an alternative fertilization technique for women who have trouble becoming pregnant or are at a higher risk of miscarriage.
HLA matching was undertaken which provided that the tissues of both the children matched and the treatment could proceed.
For one thing, HLA matching of cord blood does not need to be as strict as with bone marrow for the transplant to be successful.
