Impact of HLA compatibility on lung transplant survival and evidence for an HLA restriction phenomenon: a collaborative transplant study report.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Data concerning the impact of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) compatibility on lung transplant survival rates are limited. METHODS Using the Collaborative Transplant Study database, 5-year graft outcome according to HLA mismatch was examined in 8020 deceased donor lung transplants performed during 1989 to 2009. RESULTS Graft survival rates… (More)
