Results of a previous study suggested that recipient mismatching for the minor histocompatibility antigen HA-1 is associated with acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic marrow transplantation. In that study, most patients received either cyclosporine or methotrexate for GVHD prophylaxis, and a cytotoxic T-cell clone was used to test for HA-1 disparity. To facilitate large-scale testing, we developed a method that uses genomic DNA to identify HA-1 alleles. A retrospective study… CONTINUE READING
