HLA class II DNA typing and subsequent transplantation of an aplastic anemia patient using hair follicles as a DNA source.

Abstract

Identification of HLA-DR, DQ and DP alleles at the DNA level is an important tool for bone marrow transplantation (BMT). We recently encountered an aplastic anemia patient for whom the ability of molecular HLA typing to utilize alternative sources of DNA proved to be fundamental for her treatment. After repeated failures to obtain HLA typing using… (More)
