[…] of these loci were excluded from analyses. when hla-c and hla-dq (beta) typing at serological split level was known, the typing results for these loci were also used as input for the pirche-ii and hlamatchmaker algorithms, as described in the next sections. when hla-c and hla-dq (beta) typing was not available at serological split level, typings for these loci were extrapolated using […]

[…] human leukocyte antigen (hla) matching at the eplet level can be identified by hlamatchmaker, which requires the entry of four-digit alleles. the aim of this study was to evaluate the agreement between eplet mismatches calculated by serological and two-digit typing methods […]

[…] -b; -c; -dp; -dq; and -drb1,3,4,5 alleles for both donor and recipient. this will ensure more accurate detection of anti-hla dsa, and the use of algorithms to assess degree hla mismatching like the hlamatchmaker[,]. , this recommendation is important for every kidney transplant patient, but seems crucial for patients with augmented immunological risk. , for clinical trials, we prefer […]

[…] has been emerged over the last few years as an improved method for hla matching in solid organ transplantation. the epitope-based matching concept has been incorporated in both the pirche-ii and the hlamatchmaker algorithm to find the most suitable donor for a recipient. for these algorithms, high-resolution hla genotype data of both donor and recipient is required. since high-resolution hla […]

[…] hla typing. molecular determination of hla compatibility at the allele level, hence, represents a more accurate, albeit more costly and time-consuming, approach to identifying compatible donors. hlamatchmaker is a computer algorithm capable of estimating incompatibility at the epitope level from high-resolution donor-recipient allele types.- minimizing structural incompatibility […]
