  • The introduction into routine diagnostic laboratories of solid phase assays for human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibody detection has resulted in the application of new laboratory matching algorithms in clinical organ transplantation which have improved pre-transplant detection of immunization, in turn resulting in avoidance of rejection in many cases which until their introduction would not have been possible using the historical complement dependent serological techniques. There have been two… CONTINUE READING
