PURPOSE OF REVIEW Major histocompatibility complex class I chain-related gene A (MICA) antigens are expressed on the endothelium, they are polymorphic and have been shown to be recognized by antibodies produced by transplant recipients. Methods for detection of these antibodies have become available. In the 15th International Histocompatibility Workshop, a study for MICA antibody testing and of MICA genotyping was organized. RECENT FINDINGS Antibodies against MICA antigens have been… CONTINUE READING
