Diverging effects of HLA–DPB1 matching status on outcome following unrelated donor transplantation depending on disease stage and the degree of matching for other HLA alleles

Abstract

Disease stage and recipient/donor human leukocyte antigen (HLA) matching are important determinants of outcome in transplantation using volunteer-unrelated donors (VUD). Matching for HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, -DQB1 is beneficial, whereas the importance of DPB1 matching is more controversial. The impact of HLA matching status may differ dependent on disease… (More)
