Abstract:

The primary goal of this work was to study the human histocompatibility system and to develp methods for large-scale accurate tissue-typing for support of ongoing kidney and bone marrow transplantation programs within the Navy. The research which we have initiated is directed toward the problem of examining the HLA-D antigenic system, defining the HLA-D locus antigens, and cataloging them in such a manner that individuals could be easily typed. The following has been accomplished 1 establishment of reproducible routine typing capacity 2 development of methods for identification and procurement of homozygous typing cells HTC 3 establishment of cryopreservation techniques for long-term storage of HTC and 4 development of the hybrid HTC-PLT system for the rapid identification of HLA-D types.
