Retinal pigment epithelial cells in post mortem HLA typing of corneal donors.

Abstract

Corneas used for transplantation are typically obtained from donors up to 48 hr post mortem. By this time, standard HLA typing usually is impossible because of the lack of viable lymphocytes in spleen and peripheral blood. To increase the number of HLA-typed corneas, we developed a method in which the retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells of the donor eye… (More)
